Diocesan News. The Trustees of the Diocese of Salford have appointed Pauline Morgan to the newly created role of Diocesan Chief Operating Officer. Pauline joins a growing number of Chief Operating Officers already in place in other dioceses across the country. She will take up the role in June. The experience and skills Pauline brings, together with her background and commitment to the Church, will allow her to play a vital role in our diocesan journey. Pauline is a parishioner at Our Lady and the English Martyrs, Urmston and has been involved with the life of the Church for many years, including being actively involved in the diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes each year.
