Br. Joseph Maria Buckley

I am known as Br. Joseph Maria Buckley, although I was baptised as Michael.  Originally I am from Brisbane, Australia, one of five children.  If you go back enough generations you would find that I am mostly English or Irish in heritage, though that is quite a few generations now.  For the past six years, I have been a member of the Order of St. Paul the First Hermit and am currently a seminarian in my final year of Theology at the Angelicum in Rome.

​Br. Casimir Zielinski

My name is Casimir, well at least in Religious life. I am a seminarian of the Order of St Paul the First Hermit. I have been in the order for three years now. Before this I was a seminarian for the diocese of Lismore, Australia. I studied at Vianney College, the Seminary of the Diocese of Wagga Wagga Australia. I have a Bachelor of Arts Majoring in History and minoring in Australian Politics from Charles Sturt University, as well as half an honours degree with a supposed dissertation entitled "Polding's Benedictine Dream and the Colony of New South Wales: a study of colony and church building in the antipodes." I am currently in my final year of my Bachelor in Sacred Theology in the Italian section at the Angelicum. I am interested in History, Liturgy, Law and Monasticism. I was born in Australia of Polish parents.
