He was a military chaplain in the South Pacific and a preacher of missions, retreats, and novenas in the United States and Canada. He taught sacred eloquence. It was known as the BO course. He served as rector of Baltimore, Maryland and Union City, New Jersey. In his later years he resided at the Passionist residence, Pelham, New York and assisted at St. Michael’s Parish, Greenwich, Connecticut.
