Clayton, in Los Angeles, formerly of God's Country, MN, in his The Weight of Glory blog has a very good short history of St Joan's parish in South Minneapolis. The parish is populated by a strong core of pre-Vatican II folks, and others who probably have not received much formal religious education. Some of their social apostolates do much good. Their liturgies and religious education are wanting.
I don't know if it will ease any pain that you might have, but maybe you might learn a lesson by reading Clayton's post that will assist you in preventing your parish from travelling that same path.
Terry of Abbey-Roads has some thoughts on Father Harvey Egan.
