Use one of Oracle's prepackaged APIs, the DBMS_JOB package, to submit multiple jobs to a job queue and then run them in parallel.

This is an example code i found on the web for a procedure that is not done in parallel
declare
   vStart number;
begin
   vStart := dbms_utility.get_time;
   
   Maintenance.RebuildIndex('ORDERS_PK', 'NOLOGGING PARALLEL');
   Maintenance.RebuildIndex('SALES_PK',  'NOLOGGING PARALLEL');
   Maintenance.RebuildIndex('ORDERS_AK1','NOLOGGING PARALLEL');
   Maintenance.RebuildIndex('SALES_AK1', 'NOLOGGING PARALLEL');
   
   dbms_output.put_line('Elapsed time: ' ||
      round((dbms_utility.get_time - vStart)/100, 2) || ' hsecs' );
end;

The following is the version of the code after using the dbms_job package. Hope this helps
declare
 
   vJob number;
 
begin
   dbms_job.submit(job  => vJob,
                   what => 'Maintenance.RebuildIndex(''ORDERS_PK'',
                    ''NOLOGGING PARALLEL'');');
   dbms_output.put_line('Index ORDERS_PK: Job ' || to_char(vJob));
   
   
 
   dbms_job.submit(job  => vJob,
                   what => 'Maintenance.RebuildIndex(''SALES_PK'',
                    ''NOLOGGING PARALLEL'');');
   dbms_output.put_line('Index SALES_PK: Job ' || to_char(vJob));
 
                    
                    
      dbms_job.submit(job  => vJob,
                   what => 'Maintenance.RebuildIndex(''ORDERS_AK1'',
                    ''NOLOGGING PARALLEL'');');
   dbms_output.put_line('Index ORDERS_AK1: Job ' || to_char(vJob));
   
   
 
   dbms_job.submit(job  => vJob,
                   what => 'Maintenance.RebuildIndex(''SALES_AK1'',
                    ''NOLOGGING PARALLEL'');');
   dbms_output.put_line('Index SALES_AK1: Job ' || to_char(vJob));
   
   commit;   
end;
