It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish in St. Francisville and its mission church, Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Jackson. We are located in the civil parishes of East and West Feliciana. Our Lady of Mt. Carmel was established as a parish in 1871 although origins of Catholic life can be traced back to the early 1700s. Our Lady of Perpetual Help was established in 1858 and became a mission of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel in 1874.
We are a small but vibrant Catholic community that is continually growing in numbers and various ministries so as to fulfill the spiritual needs of our community and to build up the Body of Christ, the Church. Due to their historical nature, peaceful and serene atmosphere and their many Bed and Breakfast businesses, St. Francisville and Jackson are popular places for visitors and, as such, our church communities are blessed to have many visitors who worship with us each weekend.
The physical addresses of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel and Our Lady of Perpetual Help are 11485 Ferdinand Street, Saint Francisville and 3147 Church Street, Jackson, respectively.
Thank you for visiting our website and know that we welcome you to come and spend some time with us.
