He was graduated at the Preparatory seminary of St. Charles, Catonsville MD, went through a course of theology and philosophy in St. Mary's College (later Seminary and University), Baltimore, and was ordained by Archbishop Spalding, 2 July, 1866.

 

He was then stationed at Harper's Ferry, but for several years also had charge of the Roman Catholics living in eight counties of West Virginia and four of Virginia. During his pastorate he restored the churches of Harper's Ferry and Martinsburg, and rebuilt those that had been destroyed at Winchester and Berkeley Springs during the civil war.

 

He was nominated bishop of Wheeling, 21 February, 1875, and consecrated by Archbishop Bayley in the following May. Bishop Kain had, by 1887, thirty-four priests under his jurisdiction, ministering to a Roman Catholic population of over 20,000. There were sixty-two churches and eight chapels in his diocese, and forty stations. There were four convents, one college for boys, six academies for girls, an orphan asylum, and a hospital. The total number of pupils in the parochial schools reached nearly 2,000.
