Kalappura, who took part in a protest by nuns seeking the arrest of Bishop Franco Mulakkal, accused of raping a nun, was expelled by the FCC.
Sr Lucy criticised the Cardinal for not taking necessary action.
Mulakkal was granted conditional bail by the Kerala High Court on Monday, and released from a jail near Kottayam a day later.
The trip to the convent is part of the police's evidence gathering. According to the victim's complains, Mulakkal raped her at the VIP rest room, where he has been staying.
The SIT on Saturday got the bishop in custody for two days after presenting him before Judicial First Class Magistrate Court in Pala.
Balan said the government action in the bishop case was cent per cent correct.
Since no political party was willing to back them, the protesting nuns had to rely solely on the civil society’s support to expose the injustice meted out to them.

Police officers said they were able to present clear evidence, collected during the course of their investigation, before the bishop to convince his arrest.
When the news of the arrest first started to trickle in, the venue, where the protest by the nuns entered the 14th day on Friday, was filled with joy.
Franco complained of chest pain when he was being taken to Kottayam Police club from the Crime Branch office in Thrippunithura in Ernakulam district Friday night, they said.
It was after high drama and suspense that began around noon that top police officers finally confirmed the arrest of the bishop, around 8 pm.
Senior public prosecutor Suman Chakravarthy said on Friday the police acted only within the framework of law.
The decision was taken during a one-hour meeting of Kochi Range IG Vijay Sakhre with the Director General of Prosecution’s office here.
Agnelo Rufino Gracias, Titular Bishop of Molicunza and Auxiliary Bishop emeritus of Bombay, has been appointed as the administrator of the Jalandhar Diocese.
