Father Bapst was later named the first president of Boston College, a position he held from 1863-1869. He was then appointed Superior of the New York and Canada Missions.

In his later years, Father Bapst's mind became confused, and he often relived his horrific experiences in Ellsworth. He eventually retired to a novitiate where he resided until his death in 1887.
