No “alleluias” are permitted during the Lenten season. **Because we have a new hymnal, there are still a few hymns/songs on this list that are new to many people. All of the selections for the Final Commendation are new to the parish in general and we often use Song of Farewell, with the words in the Missalette. It is all right to have a solo at Preparation of Gifts and for the Communion Meditation.
