He was assigned first to San Xavier, then to Guevavi in 1733, succeeding Grazhofer. He was 43 at the time. Falling ill in 1734, he left Guevavi and went to Tecoripa in the PimerĂ­a Baja. He later became Father Visitor and tried to re-establish the Pimeria Alta missions. He wrote a series of letters home to Europe from the time he left for the New World until he died, which were preserved by the family. He served with distinction and was one of several who suggested Tubac as the new presidial site in 1752.
