Requests for Parish Membership
Since the restructuring of schools last year, we are restricted on who can and cannot join St. Thomas. If one lives within our boudaries, they automatically may register with us. If outside our territory and want to register for school, they may do so if the Pastor of their jurisdiction permits it. The Aston/Boothwyn Pastors do not permit it since they have a regional school. Those from outside our Parish that come here for school with permission may NOT register with us as parishioners if living within this Archdiocese. They must keep their affiliation with their own parish of residence.
