Can Catholics be registered at two parishes?

A reader writes in: “Is it permissible for a person to be registered at two parishes? We are blessed with lots of options, and one parish seems to meet our formation needs better while the other connects us with a diverse community that we value.” In his latest column, Monsignor Charles Pope answers: “It is permissible. Your experience is a common one today, and both parishes may wish to have you in their records so as to reach out from time to time. In terms of Canon Law, no distinctions or requirements should be based on the question of ‘registration’ in a parish. The concept of registration is a very American one. … Simply put, there is no requirement to be ‘registered’ in a parish in order for sacraments to be celebrated, or other requests, such as ‘letters of good standing,’ be issued.”
