All Parish Life Conferences and Archdiocese Conventions are required to use the Antiochian Events Registration System. The Department encourages all Parish Life Conferences and Archdiocese 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.
