Westminster reports Tyburn Nuns to Vatican over refusal to accept jabs against coronavirus

Tyburn Convent could face a Vatican investigation after a majority of the nuns refused to accept vaccinations against Covid-19.

The enclosed Benedictine community in the heart of London was referred to the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life by the Archdiocese of Westminster following unspecified external “allegations” connected to the scepticism of the nuns over the safety of vaccinations against the coronavirus.

The investigation comes in spite of official teaching of the Church that “vaccination is not … a moral obligation and … must be voluntary”.
