Just How Come Did St Joan of Arc Parish Get to be so Different?

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.
