It also suggested that he remain absent from public celebrations or events.
The measures are the latest in a series of steps taken against mainly retired bishops in Poland.
The Vatican imposed penalties last month on Bishop Tadeusz Rakoczy after an investigation into his handling of abuse cases.
The 83-year-old served as bishop of Bielsko-Żywiec, in southern Poland, from 1992 to 2013, when he retired after his 75th birthday.
Also in May, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Bishop Jan Tyrawa, who was investigated for negligence in handling cases of sexual abuse by priests in his diocese.
Tyrawa, bishop of the Diocese of Bydgoszcz, in northern Poland, since 2004, was accused of knowing about the abusive tendencies of one of his priests and yet of having transferred him from parish to parish.
The apostolic nunciature in Poland announced in March that the Vatican had sanctioned two retired bishops after canonical inquiries into accusations of negligence.
Archbishop Sławoj Leszek Głódź, archbishop of Gdańsk from 2008 to 2020, and Bishop Edward Janiak, who led the Diocese of Kalisz from 2012 to 2020, were ordered by the Holy See to live outside their former dioceses and told they cannot participate in public liturgies or non-religious gatherings within the territory of the dioceses.
The Vatican also imposed disciplinary measures on 97-year-old Cardinal Henryk Gulbinowicz in November 2020.
The churchman, who served as archbishop of Wrocław, in southwest Poland, from 1976 to 2004, was prohibited from attending any celebrations or public meetings. He was also forbidden to use bishops’ insignia.
He died 10 days after the sanctions were announced.
