Returning to Melbourne in 1885, he served in the St Kilda East, Carlton and Footscray parishes. He was then Parish Priest of North Fitzroy from 1894 until his death (after a long illness) in 1918. He was co-founder of the Australian Catholic Truth Society (q.v.) and was the author of Australian Catholic Truth Society pamphlets, including Louise de la Vallière (1905).
