About Our Parish


Holy Family was established in 1965, for 2600 households.                                                                                                                         

Holy Family, Enfield, was the last church dedicated during

the episcopate of Archbishop Henry J. O'Brien.

He established the parish on September 16, 1965, 

appointing Father Francis T. Kerwan founding pastor.  About 20 

acres on Simon Road had already been purchased as the site of 

a church.  More than 1200 households comprised the new 

parish.  Father Kerwan celebrated the first parish Mass at Enfield 

High School on September 19, 1965.  In the spring of 1966, a 

church building fund campaign was launched. On July 9, 1967, 

ground was broken and construction began. On November 9, 

1968, the church of trapezoidal design was dedicated by Auxiliary 

Bishop John F. Hackett.  On September 30, 2013, Pastor Rev. Kerwan

retired and was appointed Pastor Emeritus and Rev. Robert Rousseau

was appointed Pastor of Holy Family, Enfield.
