AoS appoints new Chair of Trustees

AoS has appointed Reverend Dr Stephen Morgan as its new Chair of Trustees, following the retirement of Eamonn Delaney on 19 June. 
                  Stephen, 48, is Permanent Deacon of the Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth and Financial Secretary and Secretary to the Trustees of the Diocese of Portsmouth, a role which combines those of Chief Financial Officer and Company Secretary for a Catholic Diocese. In that role he oversees the charitable operation of the diocese in the counties of Hampshire, Isle of Wight, Berkshire, Oxfordshire south of the Thames and the Channel Islands. 
                  Stephen is an Oxford graduate and previously worked in senior managerial and executive positions for various private companies. He served in the Royal Navy as midshipman for two years. 
                  Stephen is married to Caroline and they have three children; Peter, Sophia and Hugo. As well as spending time with his family, Stephen enjoys fly fishing for trout on the chalkstreams of Hampshire and Wiltshire in his free time, and was former trustee of the Wild Trout Society.
                  He is also a keen follower of rugby football and supports Wales, anyone playing against England, Cardiff Blues and Bath Rugby football teams. 

                  Stephen says of his appointment as AoS Chair of Trustees, “I am delighted that my fellow trustees have asked me to be their chair and I recognise that, in succeeding Eamonn Delaney, I am being asked to fill very big shoes. His chairmanship has been transformational for AoS and I hope and pray that I am able to be a good steward of our charitable resources, in order to support the indispensable work of our port chaplains and volunteer ship visitors”
