Archbishop Morawski was born in the szlachta Polish Roman Catholic family in the present day Pidhaitsi Raion. After graduation of the gymnasium education, he subsequently joined Faculty of Philology of the University of Lviv (1834–1836), but left his studies, because of his father's death and his own illness.

On May 13, 1881, he was appointed by the Pope Leo XIII as an Auxiliary Bishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Lviv and a Titular Bishop of Trapezopolis. On June 26, 1881, he was consecrated as bishop by Metropolitan Archbishop Franciszek Ksawery Wierzchleyski and other prelates of the Roman Catholic Church and the Armenian Catholic Church in the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption, Lviv.
