Thomas was included in a list of priests with allegations of sexual misconduct with minors with no conclusive evidence. After the Archdiocese of Philadelphia revoked his priestly faculties in 1972, Fr. Thomas reportedly left the priesthood. His whereabouts from approximately 1977 until his believed death in 1996 are unknown.
