Photos of Saint John Nepomuk

Saint John Nepomuk Church will close on July 1st as part of the reorganization of the southside deanery of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. This historic Czech church will no longer hold weekly masses, but will be available for weddings, funerals, and other special occasions. This church is cut off from the rest of Soulard by Interstate 55, and many empty lots are nearby; however, much redevelopment and new construction is occuring within a few blocks of it. This church may be needed again in a few years.
