John was determined to become a priest, but lacked in education, was terrible in Latin, and he was not an all around good student. He studied for years and although the process was difficult, he was ordained in 1815 at age 29. He was assigned to a small parish outside of Lyons which had very poor attendance. John decided he would make visits to the townspeople, especially the poor and the sick, which grew his parish - where he led by example. Also known for helping to found the La Providence - a home for girls, and spent hours at a time partaking in the mortification of others.
