Father Gregory, a priest originally from Poland, has been serving in the Diocese of Odesa-Simferopol of the Roman Catholic Church in Ukraine for almost six years. He is the rector of the parish of God's Mercy in Bashtanka, Mykolaiv region.


In early January 2021, the priest was unexpectedly admitted to the hospital for health reasons, where he was waiting for surgery. During his stay in the hospital, unknown people broke into the parish building and stole many things, documents and caused numerous damages in the building.
