Every year, each diocese in the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America holds Parish Life Conferences between May and July.

  • Dioceses of New York and Washington, D.C. & Oakland, Charleston and the Mid-Atlantic
  • Diocese of Los Angeles and the West
  • Diocese of Miami and the Southeast
  • Diocese of Ottawa and Eastern Canada and Upstate New York
  • Diocese of Toledo and the Midwest
  • Diocese of Wichita and Mid-America
  • Diocese of Worcester and New England

The biennial Archdiocesan Convention is held during the last full week in July (Sunday to Sunday) in odd-numbered years. Parishes bid to host a convention six years in advance. They start the process by contacting the co-chairs of the Department of Conventions and Conference Planning (DCCP) at

All Parish Life Conferences and Archdiocesan Conventions are required to use the Antiochian Events Registration System. The DCCP encourages all Parish Life Conferences and Archdiocesan Conventions to charge a processing fee to all teens, adults and clergy who do not purchase any event ticket(s) in order to offset administrative expenses. It is the policy of the Department that no event ticket have a price less than the price of the processing fee.

Potential host parishes should not contact hotels until they contact the DCCP co-chairs. No contract or any form of commitment should be made without the guidance and approval of the DCCP.

For more information in planning and hosting the annual Parish Life Conferences or the biennial Archdiocesan Convention, email the DCCP co-chairs at
