Goodbye and Thank You, Monsignor Shields

As you may have heard Monsignor Shields is retiring and leaving St. Thomas in Early July. His love and dedication to St Thomas and his flock is unwavering.  It is in that spirit that we are asking you make a donation to St Thomas Aquinas in his honor. Help us continue Monsignor Shields’ legacy at St Thomas Aquinas as we move into a new chapter.

Please send cards and letters for Monsignor Shields to:
St Thomas Aquinas
1719 Morris Street
Philadelphia, PA 19145
We’re also putting together a photo album. Please email any pictures you’d like to include to

We apologize but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we can not accept visitors to the Rectory. Your cards and prayers are greatly appreciated.
