Martin Buganski


Title: Mission Leader

Mission Center: New Jersey

Chapter: Seton Hall University


Born and raised in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, Martin has the Jersey attitude in his blood. He comes from a family of seven; two of his older siblings have been on staff with SPO, including his brother, Joe! Martin is a recent graduate of Seton Hall University, where he earned his Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. It was at Seton Hall where Martin encountered SPO Missionaries, through whom he felt the call to pursue a deeper relationship with Christ. 

Martin enjoys playing just about every sport; he especially loves playing Frisbee and slacklining in his free time. He also loves hiking, camping, and being outdoors, as well as sitting down to play guitar and make music with friends.

This fall, Martin will be moving to Atchison, Kansas to serve at Benedictine College. And while this native “Jerseyite” may be a little nervous about moving to Kansas (he will especially miss his beloved New Jersey bagels) he is definitely looking forward to the excitement and challenges that lie ahead! 

“There is work to be done. There are millions of souls who have not yet heard the doctrine of Christ.” – St. Josemaria Escriva
