This is the first of two reminders that next Sunday, 3 November, we change from Daylight Savings Time back to eastern Standard Time. You might remember the old memory device: “Spring Forward, Fall Back”. So next Sunday, what had been 11:00 AM will become 10:00 AM.
Bear that in mind if you prefer not to arrive at Sunday Mass too early. Going the other way in the Spring might be more crucial: finding yourself arrive for 11:00 AM Mass and being greeted by the Dismissal Rite because it has become 12:00 noon. Next, you’d see the monks trotting off to lunch rather than staying behind to celebrate an unscheduled Mass for you!
