Rev. Boudreaux joined the Jesuits in 1943. He did missionary work in India and was ordained a Jesuit priest in Sri Lanka in 1955. He returned to the United States in 1955 and taught in Jesuit high schools in Texas and Louisiana.

For two years in the mid-1970s, Rev. Boudreaux served as regional secretary of the General Curia for the Jesuits in Rome. He retired in January 2005 and took up residence at Ignatius Residence in New Orleans. Rev. Boudreaux took up residence in Wauwatosa after being relocated as a result of the flooding of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The New Orleans home of the retired Jesuits was closed in 2013, causing the residents to relocate. Rev. Boudreaux chose to relocate to St. Camillus Jesuit Community in Wauwatosa.
