CCD 2017-18

Saint Benedict Parish Calendar for CCD 2017-2018


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,or at 574-249-2168.  That in all things God may be glorified!


CCDBEGINS on September 6, 2017.  All classes will meet at the St. Benedict Catholic School Building, 7 to 8 p.m.



     Parents are asked to attend program Masses, Penance Services, and other special activities through the year. 

     For student safety, preschool through 4th grade students must be accompanied into and out of the building by a parent or authorized adult.  Parents must sign a waiver if they wish their 5th grade and above students to meet them in the parking lot.
