Father Joe Fenton
Catholic Chaplain

I am a journalist and media producer as well as a priest.  After studies at Catholic University and American University in Washington, DC and Arizona State University, I began my television career at PBS in Washington, DC and then with ABC News, NBC News and CBS-TV in New York where I anchored and produced television programs and a weekly series on the NBC Radio Network.

I later moved to London, England where I continued producing programs for the BBC and ITV.  I produced interfaith programs in consultation with the major faith groups in the USA. I have a PH.D in theology and American history and an M.A. in journalism.  I also have ministered as parish priest and seminary professor in addition to my media projects and am a member of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, BAFTA, LA.
