Fr Norman Walling SJ

Fr Walling is an American Jesuit born and raised in California.  He first came to Asia in the late 1960s and learned languages and did pastoral work in Hsinchu, Taiwan. In the early 1970’s he was appointed Province Director of Retreats and Superior of Manresa House in central Taiwan, and this was the time when he began to study the Spiritual Exercises and learn them by actually directing others in their use. 

In 1980 Fr Walling was assigned to Hong Kong. The assignment lasted for a period of some 20 years minus 4 years spent in the United States (when he was ministering to various Chinese communities throughout the country, including promoting the ministry of ‘Marriage Encounter’.) Among Norman's major work during this lengthy period was to look after the final stage of the formation of Jesuits in the China Province as Tertian Director.  Norman also did pastoral work throughout Hong Kong and gave many retreats at Xavier House.

In 2002 Norman returned to Taiwan where he was again assigned to Manresa Retreat House as Superior.  His main work was the giving of the Spiritual Exercises.  He was re-assigned to Hong Kong in 2008 and has since been serving as a spiritual director and member of the retreat staff in Xavier Retreat House.
