 Chapels at Mount St. Scholastica Convent The Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica have been in Atchison since 1863 and at their present location since 1877.

The interior is rich with beautiful marbles including Rosso Verona pillars, in which many visible fossils can be seen. There is a beautiful large rose window, and stained-glass windows honoring the seven martyred women saints mentioned in the ancient Canon of the Mass.

A Romanesque vaulted ceiling graces the interior of the Choir Chapel, which has facing choir stalls and stained-glass windows retelling the life of St. Benedict.
