MISSION: The mission of the Saint Benedict Parish CCD Program is to help parents bring their children 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 on Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00p.m., for all students (Pre-School through 8 th Grade) of the Atchison area. The cost is $35/year for the first child in a family; $45/year for two children and $55/year 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, Daniel Hager at This email address is being protected from spambots.

CCD BEGINS on September 18, 2019. All classes will meet at the St. Benedict Catholic School Building.


● Parents are strongly encouraged to attend program Masses, Penance Services, and other special activities through the year. It’s such a blessing to be able to spend time with students and their families.

● For student safety, preschool through 4 th 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 5 th grade and above students to meet them in the parking lot.

● Weather cancellations will be announced through email by 4:00 p.m. on the day of class. Please include your e-mail address on the registration form.
