St. Franz was the son of a prominent doctor who studied at Provence and Paris. When he was 20 years old Franz entered the seminary and was ordained priest in 1784. He became a chaplain and confessor in Paris. He soon became a Master of Arts graduate. He served as a vicar in St. Landry. He was arrested with other priests during the French Revolution. He was then executed in 1791 because he refused to say the Oath to the Civil Constitution.
