Stephen Badin came to the U.S. while in seminary and became the first priest ordained in the United States. He was a cantankerous and demanding, but caring, spiritual guide. He was sent to minister to the Catholics in Kentucky, and spent himself there and eventually in parts of the Midwest building the Church.
