Father Henryk Jankowski (18 December 1936, Starogard Gdański – 12 July 2010, Gdańsk) was a Polish Roman Catholic priest, member of Solidarity movement and one of the priests supporting that movement in opposition to the communist government in the 1980s. He was also a long serving provost of St. Bridget's church in Gdańsk (until 2004). In the late 1990s he became known for his critique of the European Union and for anti-Semitic remarks, and was suspended from preaching for a year. Father Jankowski was accused of being a homosexual pedophile and child rapist but was never convicted. The issue is still being investigated, remains a matter of discussion and an object of press's interest.
He supported the Father Henryk Jankowski Institute, described as supporting charities and social projects, by sales of a wine with his image on the label, sold under the name "Monsignore", and had plans to open a chain of 16 cafés in major Polish cities and to market perfume and clothing also bearing his image.
