Dig deep and see the young Catholic Church fully alive!

Join Benedictine College Ministry the 1st Saturday of the month for Underground! Remember first-century Christians who dug deep in the catacombs so they could celebrate their faith. Today, Underground does this with contemporary music, dynamic orthodoxy, energetic youth and powerful presentations. Underground welcomes all teens and young adults in the four-state region of Missouri, Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas (MINK) and provides them with the chance to experience the beauty of the Mass and the teachings of Christ with their peers.


Underground consists of:

  • 5:30 pm Pump up Music
  • 6 pm Speaker, Presentation, or Concert
  • 7 pm Eucharistic Adoration
  • 7:30 pm Mass in the Dark


All Underground events take place at the O’Malley-McAllister Auditorium on the campus of Benedictine College, Student Union, 1020 North Second Street, Atchison, KS 66002. Doors open at 5:30pm and the event begins at 6:00pm.
