Learn more about BACAR and our Mission Statement.

Prayer and Conversation Virtually / In Person

The Bay Area Conference of Associates and Religious (BACAR) is a network of associates, religious, and friends who gather together for prayer, mutuality, inspiration, support and friendship. To facilitate these goals BACAR sponsors discussion groups virtual & in person, conferences, and an electronic newsletter. These activities create opportunities for promoting, developing and nurturing lay-religious relationships, community and ministries in the San Francisco and Monterey Bay Areas. Associates and Members of Religious Institutes are able to remain connected and share information on pertinent topics. We invite and encourage friends, especially young adults to join us. Check out our upcoming forums. We invite you to add topics and volunteer to facilitate a Forum.
