Rev. Albin Dunajewski (b. 1 March 1817 in Stanisławów - 19 June 1894 in Kraków) was a Bishop of Kraków, Poland, as well as charitable patron and high-profile social activist.[1]


In 1882, Albin Dunajewski ordained Brother Raphael Kalinowski as Priest of the Discalced Carmelite Order. Father Raphael was canonized in 1991, by Pope John Paul II. In 1892, Cardinal Dunajewski laid the corner-stone for the construction of the Church of the Holy Virgin Mary of Lourdes founded by the Lazarists in the district of Krowodrza, but died two years later, just before its consecration in 1894.[1]
