We were founded in 1995 by Fr. David Dye. Fr. Linus DeSantis took over that year, and served until 2006, followed by Fr. Paul Burke. Fr. Joseph Morris was appointed in 2007 and served until summer, 2021. Fr. Bob Frederick was appointed in July, 2021 and is the current director of the Catholic Center at KSU.
The building of the Catholic Center has also seen some change since it was acquired back in 1995. We have done our best to keep up with a constantly growing community. In 2009, we added an addition onto the side of the building where the chapel currently resides.
Our famous Fall Retreat has also seen some changes over the years. It all started in 2007, and was originally called Urbanocity. We got up WAY EARLY on Saturday morning to serve the poor and homeless at the St. Francis Soup Kitchen at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Atlanta. We had Mass at the Shrine, lunch, and then spent Saturday afternoon reflecting on our experience. That retreat has morphed into what we know now as Numinosity. This is a fantastic retreat led by the students with the help of Father Joseph. In recent years, we have had to cap the retreat at 60 students.
