Wanting loved ones to come to God- or come back to God- is a pretty typical manifestation of love in Christians, in my experience, given the faith's concern over being saved and the consequences of not being saved. You shouldn't have to give up who you are, and at the end of the day I don't think your parents would want to watch you break yourself doing it just to make them happy.

As for the relics, I can understand your reluctance to take them if they're authentic, but like others in the thread, I think that you could be a good caretaker of them. You love and respect the people that are passing them on to you, and whether they're authentic or not I have no doubt that you would treat the relics with love and respect for just that reason. If they don't feel like 'yours' you could care for them until you find the right person for them to be with, or you could (if they're real) donate them to the church from your childhood in your brother's memory.

Another option is to keep them. I know you said that you have no connection to these saints, but something struck me when you posted the post I'm quoting. Obviously these relics are important to your family, and I would assume (though I may be wrong) that this would imply those saints are therefore important to your family. Have you considered honoring the saints among your family's dead in your Kemetic practice, as intercessories to God who can watch over your Christian family? I'm not a recon, so it might not mesh correctly- I don't know.
