This comes after her appeals to legal forums within the Catholic Church against her dismissal on “disciplinary grounds” were rejected.

The letter further declared, “Now onwards it is unlawful for you to continue to stay in any of the Franciscan Clarist Convents.”.

According to an internal church communication, Apostalica Signatura, the apex judicial authority in the Catholic Church, rejected the nun’s third appeal against dismissing her from the century-old Congregation.

“The appeal of Lucy Kalappura is rejected by Apostalica Signatura and the dismissal is confirmed,” a communication in the Congregation said.

In January 2019, Kalappura had protested against Bishop Franco Mulakkal, who has been accused of raping a fellow nun between 2014 and 2016.

Her multiple appeals to the Catholic Church in India and the Vatican, challenging her dismissal, were subsequently rejected.

Meanwhile, Bishop Mulakkal, who is being tried by the Kottayam court for the rape, is currently out on bail. »
