Bishop To Ave Maria University: Latin Mass Every Day

“Due to the demand for the celebration of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, both from Catholics residents in Ave Maria Town as well as from students, faculty, and staff at Ave Maria University, and in accordance with ‘Summorum Pontificum’, it is fitting that a Sunday Mass be celebrated on campus in the Extraordinary Form. In keeping with the same manifest desire, it would seem opportune that the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite be celebrated on a daily basis at the University, and at a convenient time. Further, it is noted that, in accordance with ‘Summorum Pontificum’, unscheduled Masses can also be celebrated by priests on campus, in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.”

Am I correct in concluding that this letter, as written, would seem to imply that the townsfolk and students of Ave Maria petitioned the Bishop to have the TLM said regularly, and that the number of requests was apparently large enough to warrant the Bishop recommending a daily Mass in addition to a regularly scheduled Sunday Mass, as well as other Masses "as desired"...and to think that nobody is really interested in the TLM... hmm?
