A priest, educator, social activist, born in Dyckojno near Kaunas in Lithuania, died in Kraków. He came from a family of parochial nobility.

He became the provincial prosecutor of the Congregation of the XX Missionaries. He was a catechist, chaplain, social worker and he conducted charity work. He bought a tenement house at No. 42 Długa St. in Krakow, where he ran a clubhouse for children, mainly boys from poor families, where they could study, eat, write or read. With time, another home for poor boys was opened – in these activities he was assisted by missionary priests. During the Nazi occupation, some rooms were converted into hospitals. After the war, the plants were transformed into charity and educational activities, but were soon closed by the authorities.
