Discontinuing Wearing a Chasuble During the Summer

Starting after Trinity Sunday (June 16), I plan to stop wearing the colorful pancho-like vestment for the summer and instead will wear an alb and stole. I am doing this to help the congregation experience a less-formal feel in worship. Chasubles can also be hot during the summer and they restrict some movement.


The chasuble is worn as a vestment for Holy Communion and is not worn when Communion is not served, as at the funerals I have conducted. Chasubles are optional for Communion services and some congregations never use them. Ours are quite ornate and the pastor of another church has already told me he wants to buy ours if we stop using them.
