Yes, dear friends, beginning next weekend, we are eliminating the recessional hymn in favour of the Hymn of Thanksgiving after communion. This is a "pilot program" that the rector and I will evaluate before Lent to decide if this will be a permanent change. I brought the idea out of mental deep-freeze and posed it to him last week, as the Masses have been getting a bit longer since we had to implement the change regarding purification.
