After a 31-year career during which Paula Moses held a variety of managerial and executive positions with New England Telephone and AT&T, she retired to Maine full-time to enjoy the slower pace, the ocean, the mountains, and the people. Paula’s retirement didn’t last long, and at the request of her pastor, she agreed to take a two-year, part-time position as business manager for the three Biddeford, Maine, parishes. Nine years later, while still working full-time as business coordinator of the new Good Shepherd Parish, (which encompasses the three Biddeford parishes as well as Saco, Old Orchard, and Lyman), Paula retired again. As a retiree, she has enjoyed becoming a Literacy Volunteer, serving on a number of small nonprofit boards, working at a local animal shelter, and being a Hospice Volunteer. Paula is active in her parish and served on the Diocesan Finance Council for 10 years, concluding as a two-year Chair.
