London, England: When Joe Dziok walks to work he says he feels like is walking on a street that comes out of a Charles Dickens novel. That’s because he is living and working in a very historic area. And he gets to see this beautiful street every day on his walk to a very special summer job.
Joe is working for NBC this summer in its coverage of the 2012 Summer Olympics. Many know him from his work as the organist at St. Rose de Lima Parish in Chicopee or from his involvement in the San Damiano Youth Group from St. Stanislaus Basilica Parish in Chicopee.
Catholic Communications contacted Joe — via Facebook — and asked him to provide some pictures and insights from this special summer.
A graduate of Cathedral High School, Joe is a student at the University of Hartford. He is also living this summer right across the street from St. Patrick’s Church (shown above) in London. The good Franciscan Friars who run the church are offering Joe their hospitality as he has this summer to remember.
Joe writes that he will send more photos and reflections throughout the summer. He is a conscientiousNBC employee and says he cannot send photos of his work there. However, he will be able to share many other images from England. Stay tuned.
