This demand letter alleges abuse by Rev. Joseph E. Birmingham in 1964, when Cultrera was a 15-year-old altar boy at St. James parish in Salem MA. Cultrera had met with Sr. Rita McCarthy and Rev. John B. McCormack about this allegation on August 18, 1994. See McCarthy's memo describing that meeting. For subsequent events leading up to the claim letter, see Cultrera's Statement to McCormack on January 28, 2003, and the documentary Hand of God.
