He was for some years educator of our youth in the colleges of Udine and Gemona until 1924 when he was sent to USA. There, he was assigned to the parish ministry of Springfield and White Plains.

Back to Italy in 1933 he dedicated himself, for some time, to the ministry of preaching for which he had special gifts.  In 1941 he was sent as the first parish priest of the new foundation in Battipaglia.

In 1946 he was elected provincial vicar and in the same time he became provost of the parish of St Croce in Milan.  There, he poured all his energy into organising the parish in an excellent way.  His determination caused our two university boarding colleges to be built, against many difficulties.  His apostolic activity was all steeped with the fire of charity that inflamed his heart and which came from a deeply pious and generous soul.
