He attended Phoenix Lawrence Grammar School, North Junior High School and St. Mary Parish High School in Waltham, MA before enrolling at Mount Carmel Junior Seminary in Niagara Falls, Ont., to study for the priesthood in the Carmelite Order. He professed his first vows in August 1945 at the Carmelite Novitiate in New Baltimore, PA., and took the religious name of Florian. He continued at Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. where he received his M.A. degree in sociology in 1948, and began theology studies at Whitefriars Hall in Washington, professing his vows there in September 1948. Ordained in 1951 at the Scapular Church in 1951 in New York, he began his first apostolate as teacher at Mount Carmel High School in Chicago, was later assigned to Salpointe High School in Tucson, AZ for six years.
