Fr. Hervé de la Tour was ordained in 1981 by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and immediately assigned to teach at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary (then in Ridgefield, CT).

From 1983 to 1989 he was rector and headmaster at St. Mary’s College & Academy, KS.

During the period of 1989 to 1996 he was assigned as professor at Holy Cross Seminary in Goulburn, Australia.  During this period, he also edited the Catholic Family magazine and assisted homeschooling families in their task of education.

From 1997 to 1999 he was prior of St. Anthony's in New Zealand, where he took care of the parish school.

From 1999 to early 2001 he was stationed in France where he studied the philosophy of education, especially through the writings of Fr. Calmel.

In 2001, he came back to the United States (he is currently stationed at Society's priory in Los Gatos, CA) where he is working as a consultant in educational matters and has visited several schools to give conferences to the teachers.
