The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is for those who are considering whether they want to become members of the Catholic Church, as well as those who are interested in learning about the Catholic faith. These individuals may or may not have been baptized Catholic or were baptized in another faith tradition and are seeking to be fully initiated into the Sacraments of the Catholic community. Those seeking Baptism, Confirmation, or to join the Catholic Church are invited to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and/or Confirmation classes.

While only BAC residential students can receive the Sacraments through the Abbey, all are invited to participate in the program in order to learn more about the Catholic faith.
