Assignment Record -– Rev. William J. Walsh, S.J.
Summary of Case: A Jesuit of the Maryland Province ordained in 1954, Walsh's assignments took him from the archdiocese of Baltimore to Pittsburgh PA, where he was the founding headmaster of a diocesan pre-seminary high school in the early 1960s. His assignments included several stints at Georgetown University in Washington DC, and at the Jesuit Novitiate in Allentown, PA. After five years as assistant for formation and studies at the Province's Curia in the 1980s, Walsh spent a year with the Jesuit community in Berkeley, CA, then several years as rector in two different Philadelphia Jesuit residences. In 1991 Walsh began work as a foreign missionary in China. In 1996 five of his nieces reported to his order that Walsh had sexually abused them when they were little girls some 40 years previously; they were prompted to act when Walsh wrote to a relative that he had befriended a 3-year-old girl in China. Walsh was sent to treatment. He lived in a Jesuit community at Georgetown in DC until 1998, when he was transferred to the Jesuit's Ferdinand Wheeler House in Baltimore, MD. In 2010 he was moved to the Jesuits' Colombiere Community in Baltimore.

This assignment record collates Walsh's career history as it is represented
in the Official Catholic Directory with allegations as reported in the
media. We make no representation regarding the truth of the allegation we report,
and we remind our readers that the U.S. legal system presumes that a person
accused of or charged with a crime is innocent until proven guilty. Similarly,
individuals who may be defendants in civil actions are presumed not to be liable
for such claims unless a plaintiff proves otherwise. Admissions of guilt or
liability are not typically a part of civil or private settlements. For more
