The Chancellery of the Archdiocese of New York
Annual Election of Lay Trustees for Parishes
Every year in June, we ask priests for help with the annual election of two lay trustees to serve their church. This is necessary to ensure that every parish corporation in the archdiocese is complying with the New York State Religious Corporation Law which offers many benefits.
Parish Administration Certification Class
The archdiocese has developed a comprehensive program to provide basic accounting, finance, canon law, civil law, and managerial skills for priests to become more effective managers. The Parish Administration Certification Program (PACP) intends to introduce and train priests to handle a variety of topics and issues faced by an administrator or pastor.
