Parish Administrators' Collaboration
 
 
Mission Statement:  The Parish Administrators' Collaboration (PAC) of the Diocese of Maine is a community of professionals who share

A “Parish Administrator” is defined as the one person in each church who is central to the overall administration of the congregation, including - but not limited to - office coordination, calendaring and appointments, secretarial work, preparation of materials, etc.
