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.  


Ordinary Time

There's nothing ordinary about Ordinary Time.  It's just the weeks of the year that don't fall into the other liturgical seasons; Advent, Christmas, Lent, and Easter.  We can do extraordinary things in Ordinary Time.  Every Sunday is special.  Every week day is special.  It's the time of the year when we strive to get closer to God, and to bring others with us.

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.

Of course visitors are always welcome.
