Having chosen to serve God in ecclesiastical state, he was ordained and became a Canon in the Cathedral of Valence. In this station, the sanctity of Hugh’s life and his extraordinary talents earned him praise of the Church, his gentleness and affability won him the affection of his colleagues.

Hugh then the Bishop of Die but soon thereafter became the Archbishop of France Lyons for 52 years according to Franciscan Media and Cardinal Legate of the Holy See, he was reasonably effective in his role of a reformer. Hugh  fearlessly supported the Papacy and was an eloquent minister.
