How do I schedule adorers around Daylight Savings Time?
Daylight Savings Time (DST) is a difficult thing to wrap one's mind around, and it's different for each country (and even different regions within the same country). You can learn more about DST at the following links:
Here is an explanation of Daylight Savings Time in the USA, and recommended workarounds.
In the spring, clocks spring forward from 1:59:59 AM straight to 3:00:00 AM. Thus, the 2:00 AM hour simply "doesn't exist".
We recommend that you notify your 2:00 AM adorers to let them know that they don't have to show up for adoration that day. Or, don't notify them and you may simply have double the number of adorers at your 3:00 AM hour.
You should also notify all of your Sunday adorers that they should set their clocks forward an hour because they'll need to go to adoration an hour earlier that day.
In the fall, clocks fall back from 1:59:59 AM to 1:00:00 AM. Thus, there are two 1:00 AM hours.
The additional 1:00 AM hour will not appear on your adoration schedule and will not be something your adorers can sign up for.
If you plan to have adoration during that second 1:00 AM hour, we recommend that you sign up at least two people for the 1:00 AM hour and then ask one of them to take the second 1:00 AM hour.
You should also notify all of your Sunday adorers that they should set their clocks back an hour because they'll need to go to adoration an hour later that day.
