Welcome to

The Parish of Carrickfergus & Whitehead



I am delighted to welcome you to the Parish of Carrickfergus and Whitehead. I hope that you will find here all the information you seek about our parish family.

Ours is a coastal parish set in a beautiful geographical location in East Antrim, a place that has played an important role in the history of Ulster. We are the inheritors of a long and rich religious and cultural tradition which we would be privileged to share with you.

Praised be Jesus Christ in the Church!

Making a Difference


Planning a Liturgy or other service?

We recognise that music is an essential aspect of any liturgy and that the choice of music can be very personal.  The parish has provided a list of both traditional and contemporary sacred music commonly used within funerals. All pieces listed are covered by the licenses we hold or are now in the public domain.
