I am on my third patch, and my patch change day is Sunday (9/2). In the shower this evening my patch came off, so I replaced it with another one as soon as I got out. I put it in the same place on my body as the one that came off, but I was wondering if I needed to have stuck it to a different spot since I am supposed to change places each week. On Sunday I begin my off-week, and I am hoping that Sunday will remain my Patch-Change Day, is that correct? Thank you.

It's fine that you stuck it on in the same area, since it would have stayed on that spot had it not fallen off.
And yes, you can still keep Sunday as your patch-change day. Just take off this patch the same time you usually do.
