When St. Mary's Seminary was erected into a university by Pope Pius VII in 1822, Father Damphoux was one of its first three doctors. In 1829, he resigned from the Society. He was the Archbishop’s secretary in 1833, and in 1837 he was Rector of the Cathedral. He later became pastor of the recently established St. Joseph’s and oversaw the construction of its first church. He was secretary at all Provincial Councils of Baltimore from 1829 to 1849. He died on August 7, 1860.
