Provincial Superior, Sr. Christina Syrotynsky SSMI and Roman Zubach, Carpathia Credit Union Chair unveil the first Life Love Legacy Donor Recognition plaque that has been permanently installed in the new front entrance as a daily reminder of the generosity of Carpathia Credit Union
On January 11th, 2017, the new front entrance of Holy Family Home, blessed by a very generous gift from Carpathia Credit Union, officially opened. The Sisters Servants of Mary Immaculate, His Grace, Metropolitan Lawrence, His Eminence Metropolitan Yurij, Reverend Fathers, Donors, Friends and Board members joined together to celebrate this first complete piece of the Life Love Legacy Campaign.
What is seen in the new front entrance is just the beginning of many more positive changes to come in the new addition and the areas to be renovated in our existing facilities.

In mid-February 2016, Holy Family Home Inc. awarded a construction contract to Bockstael Construction to proceed with the Building Expansion & Revitalization Project. The project includes approximately 153,600 square feet with four floors of rooms, and 46,600 square feet of outdoor space for residents. Following Sustainable Green Building design, the facility will include geothermal energy and comply with Manitoba Hydro’s Power Smart Program. The new building on the site at Main Street and Redwood Avenue will replace the 116-bed Building B and provide an additional 41 beds for a total of 317 residents. It will also include a number of renovations to the existing facilities at HFH.
The construction will commence in April 2016, and will take approximately 134 weeks to complete. Regular updates will be provided through the Project Updates section of this website, internal flat screen TVs and other communication vehicles to ensure that all stakeholders are aware of progress being made throughout the construction period.
