He was ordained on May 22, 1941. He gradated from Cathedral Preparatory School in 1933 and attended St. Charles College in Maryland and North American College in Rome. He served as secretary of the bishop's board of consultors since April 1951 and was director of the diocese's Cemeteries office. He served as vicar of cemeteries until 1991.
