Welcome to our parish website


Mount St Nicholas Carrickfergus


Our Lady of Lourdes Whitehead

On this site you’ll find information about our parish community, our churches and school and most importantly our worship of God – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Our Holy Father
Pope Francis has said “knowing Jesus is the best gift that anyone can ever receive. That we have encountered Him is the best thing that has happened in our lives. And making Him known by our deeds and words is our greatest joy.”

That’s how we feel about our faith here in Carrickfergus & Whitehead, and we would love everyone in our community to know that same joy too. You’re most welcome to come to any of our services and events, and if you have any questions or you would like to talk or pray with someone please get in touch.

May God bless us and Our Lady protect us!
