Holy Family Parish was formed in December of 2006 after the amalgamation of the two Catholic Parishes in Amherst - Saint Charles Borromeo and Nativity of Our Lady. This was a result of the Forward in Faith Process put forth by the Archdiocese of Halifax. Plans began in 2008 to build a new Holy Family Church and Parish Center and on July 25, 2010 the new facility was formally dedicated.


We extend a warm welcome to all newcomers to our Parish and hope you will be happy in our midst. To help us keep our records up to date and enable us to serve you better, please complete our new parishioner form and place it in the collection.
