Franciscan Clarist Congregation(FCC) expelled Sister Lucy, who protested against Franco Mulakkal for not following the norms of FCC
Wayanad: Kerala’s Franciscan Clarist Congregation (FCC) has sent a letter to the family of Sister Lucy Kalappura to take her back after she was expelled from FCC.
Sister Lucy was one among the five nuns from a convent in Kottayam Kuravilangadu seminary who staged a protest on September 8 in front of Kochi high court against Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal.
She was dismissed from FCC for not following the norms of the FCC and living a lifestyle not complying with the rules of the nunnery. The letter to the family members was issued by Sister Jyothi Maria, provincial superior of FCC. The letter asks the family to take Lucy back from the convent in Wayanad.
Earlier, a show cause notice was sent pointing out various issues to Lucy, teacher of Dwaraka Sacred Heart School in Wayanad, Kerala.
Among other allegations, Lucy has been asked to explain her participation in a TV channel discussion and was questioned for writing in non-Christian newspapers and publishing a book of poems using Rs 50,000 without the permission of church authorities.
The notice said that the nun's involvement on social media cannot be appreciated. It further stated that though several chances were given to her for correcting her mistakes, sister Lucy was not ready for it. Lucy's stand on Kerala nun rape case has led to many debates in the state about the freedom and the individual rights of a nun.
She told media that she has nowhere to go and she will fight to get a favourable order.
