Ordained to the Roman Catholic priesthood in 1808, he entered the Society of St. Sulpice shortly thereafter. He taught for two years in France before coming to America. In this country he labored as a seminary professor at St. Mary's Seminary in Baltimore, and then for sixteen years at Mt. St. Mary's in Emmitsburg, Maryland. He also served as president of St. Mary's College in Baltmore from 1815 to 1818. He was named first Catholic bishop of Vincennes, Indiana in 1834.
