Peter improved the financial lives of his community by setting up a community bank. The townspeople could borrow money from the bank without paying interest.

At fifteen Peter was sent to the University of Pont-a-Mousson.   
He became a Canon Regular in the Abbey of Chamousey and was ordained in 1589.

After attaining his doctorate, Peter served as vicar and procurator for the Chaumousey abbey parish, then in 1597 he was sent as parish priest to a rundown and neglected parish at Mattaincourt, where he spent the next 30 years.
