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.  


Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday.  These are the final days leading up to Jesus glorious resurrection, the greatest event in the history of the world!  Join us each day of the Triduum at 4:30 for services.  We look forward to seeing you.

No matter what the season, you're always welcome at Saint John Nepomuk Chapel.  Normally, the first Sunday of the month is "Hospitality Sunday" when we serve pastries and coffee following 9:30 mass and invite you to join us.  Please check our calendar page for Hospitality Sunday dates and for all our other activities.
