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 161 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.  



Alleluia!  He is risen!

For Catholics Easter is more than just one day.  We celebrate this holy season all the way up to May 15, Pentecost.  Long after the chocolate bunnies have been eaten and the lilies have left the church, we continue to sing "Alleluia!  He is risen!  Jesus rising from the grave, conquering death, and saving us from our sins is far too important to be limited to just one day.  We'll wear the white or gold vestments and rejoice in this joyous event for the next several weeks.

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.   Or, feel free to join us any weekend.  
Visitors are always welcome!
