MISSION: The mission of the Saint Benedict Parish CCD Program is to help parents bring young people into communion with Jesus Christ and His Church, leading them to the love of God the Father and life in the Holy Spirit. We strive to provide teaching that will allow each student to develop a deeper understanding of Catholic teaching and mature in the life of Faith.

We offer CCD or Religious Education on a one hour per week basis, Wednesdays 7 to 8 p.m., for all students (Pre-School through 8th Grade) of the Atchison area. The cost is $30/yr for the first child in a family; $45/yr for two children and $55/yr for three or more children in a family.  Text materials are provided. Questions may be addressed to the pastor, Fr.Jeremy Heppler, O.S.B., or the CCD coordinator, Jake or Bekah Firestine at This email address is being protected from spambots.
