Saint John Nepomuk Chapel
Est. 1854

Welcome to Saint John Nepomuk, the oldest Czech Roman Catholic church in the New World.

Welcome to Saint John Nepomuk Chapel, the oldest Czech church in the New World.  Founded in 1854, Saint John’s has been serving Catholics in the historic Soulard area of Saint Louis for 159 years.  Today we embrace our Czech heritage but our church is attended by people of all backgrounds from all over the Metropolitan Saint Louis Area.

Please join us for the holy sacrifice of the mass Saturday afternoon at 4:30 or Sunday morning at 9:30.  All masses are celebrated in English with Czech hymns on Sunday morning.  



Advent is a time of hope, a time of preparation, a time of yearning for a Savior.  In order to prepare for the coming of the Christ Chile, first we must recognize our great need for Him.  Of course this time of year is full of parties and celebration.  But to fully prepare ourselves for the arrival of the One who will save us from our sins, we must spend time in prayer.

If you're not in the habit of daily prayer, now would be a good time to start.  There are a number of on-line resources for your use.  One is Father Robert Barron's Word on Fire website.  You can sign up for daily emails with a prayer for the day.  That's just one of many.

Join us each week on Saturday at 4:30 pm and Sunday morning at 9:30 for the celebration of the Eucharist.  Saint John Nepomuk is one of the most beautiful churches in the Archdiocese and we don't preach a watered-down Gospel.  If you enjoy the traditional English language mass and solid Gospel teaching, we could be your new church home.

Also, plan to join us on Christmas Eve at 4:30 and Christmas morning at 9:30.

Of course visitors are always welcome.
