He was first named Assistant at Saint Michael's Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in October, 1905. He was appointed Pastor of Saint Frederick's Church in Cudahy, Wisconsin, from post he resigned in November, 1907. Thereafter, due to his illness, he served for short periods at Saint Aemilian's Orphan Asylum in Saint Francis, Wisconsin, House of the Good Shepherd in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, Immaculate Conception Church in Burlington, Wisconsin, and Saint Rose Orphanage in Milwaukee.
