Notes: In 1996, while on a foreign mission in China, five sisters accused their uncle, Fr. William J. Walsh, of sexually abusing them approximately 40 years earlier. Fr. Walsh was recalled from China and reassigned to Woodstock Jesuit Community at Georgetown University. Two years later, in 1998, the five sisters made their allegations public because the Jesuit order had not removed Fr. Walsh. The Order subsequently removed Fr. Walsh from active ministry. It was reported that the sisters had all been sexually abused individually and believed herself to be the only victim of Fr. Walsh. It was not until 40 years later that they reconciled their stories. One sister claimed Fr. Walsh had abused her up to 200 times. Fr. Walsh’s whereabouts, his status as a priest, and whether he has access to children are unknown.
