Extraodinary Form of the Mass Begins

As reported in the Archdiocese of Anchorage newspaper, the Catholic Anchor:

Tridentine Mass returns
Beginning this month, the Anchorage Archdiocese will provide regular celebrations of the Tridentine Rite Mass — also known as the extraordinary form of the Mass. The centuries-old Tridentine Rite — which is said in Latin — was the standard Roman Catholic liturgy before the Second Vatican Council (1962-65). In his July 2007 apostolic letter, Pope Benedict XVI reasserted its use.
The Tridentine Mass will be celebrated at St. Michael Church in Palmer (432 East Fireweed Ave.) on the following Saturdays at 10:30 a.m.: July 18, August 22, September 19, October 24, November 21 and December 19. St. Michael pastor Father Thomas Brundage, JCL will be the celebrant.

Is the TLM on August 22 for sure? I was told it was the third Saturday of the month, but maybe it was changed because of the Assumption (???). I'm trying to figure out whether to set my alarm for tomorrow or not.

I live in ER, but go to Holy Family because Fr V says the ancient Dominican rite there; the first Saturday of every month is blocked off on my schedule. I apparently missed the first TLM Mass at St M's - just found out about it and am trying to find out the date.

God bless you and your family,
