What year(s) did the major abuses start to take shape at the NO in these United States??

I find it ironic that Extraordinary Ministers didn't start showing up until after a directive called "Immensae Caritatis" in, I think it was January of 1973?? So up until that time laypeople were still kneeling at the Altar Rail and receving on the tongue by the ordained only?? What year did most dioceses take out the Communion Rails and introduce all those abuses to the Mass?? Did the "modernistic" churches that were constructed after 1966 include Altar Rails or no??

CITH may have started in Europe in 1969-70, but I don't think it really took hold until 1976-77 here in the states, is that correct???

Thanks in advance!
