He entered the novitiate at Villanova, Pennsylvania on August 28, 1885, and made his profession of vows on August 29, 1886. He was solemnly professed on August 31, 1889. Following studies at Villanova, he was ordained to the priesthood in the Philadelphia Cathedral by Archbishop Patrick Ryan on March 15, 1890.

Shortly after ordination he was assigned to Saint Paul’s Parish in Mechanicville, New York. After a brief period of several months during the summer of 1890 at St. Denis, Havertown, he returned to Mechanicville, where he remained until 1896, when he was assigned to St. Augustine in Philadelphia. 

In December, 1900, Father Cullinane was sent to Hoosick Falls, N. Y. and in June, 1901, to St. Augustine in Lansingburgh, N. Y. His last assignment, made in July, 1902, was to Saint Mary’s in Lawrence, Mass.
