Marian Jaworski (Ukrainian: Мар'ян Яворський, born August 21, 1926) is a Cardinal Priest and the former Archbishop of Lviv of the Latins in the Roman Catholic Church.

Born as son of Wincenty and Stanisława Łastowiecka in Lwów, Poland (now Lviv, Ukraine), Jaworski studied at the Lwów Major Seminary and was ordained in Kraków on June 25, 1950. He served as a priest for two years (1950–1952) before returning to school, obtaining three doctorates by 1965 – one in theology from the Jagiellonian University, and Ph.D.s from the Lublin Catholic University and Warsaw Theological Academy.

In 1970, he was made secretary of the Polish Bishops' Scientific Council from 1970 to 1984. He was Dean of the Pontifical Theological Faculty in Kraków from 1976 to 1981, and its Rector from 1981–1987.

Appointed apostolic administrator of Lviv for territories within Poland in May 1984, he was consecrated bishop on June 23. He was made archbishop on January 16, 1991.

With the consistory of February 21, 1998, Jaworski was created Cardinal by John Paul II in pectore, one of four such secret cardinal appointments made by the pontiff during his tenure; Jaworski's cardinalate was publicly proclaimed at the consistory of February 21, 2001. He was one of the cardinal electors who participated in the 2005 papal conclave that selected Pope Benedict XVI. On October 2008 the Pope accepted his resignation as archbishop.
