Weather Cancelation

As Oskaloosa schools have been canceled due to the weather, St. Mary’s will also be canceling activities for the night. This means that Theology of the Body and Praise Band will not be meeting tonight.

Please stay safe and warm!

Weather Cancellations

Weather Cancellations will be announced via: 
Email (Sent to all parishioners.)
The KBOE radio station 
The Parish Website (
 The notification can be found under ‘Parish News’ at the bottom of the homepage.
Realizing, many parishioners live outside of Oskaloosa we will try to make weather decisions early enough so everyone can be notified. However, we do want you to stay safe. So if you do not feel safe driving in for a parish event we encourage you to stay home and stay safe.
*If you are not receiving emails from the parish please contact the Parish Office to update your email address. You can reach the office via phone 641.673.6680 or email

Epiphany Celebration!

Thank you to everyone who came out for our Epiphany Celebration!

Students learned about how other cultures celebrate Epiphany by visiting different stations. They decorated ‘Kings Day’ donuts, made New Year Blessing for their homes, listened to The Legend of Old Befana, and more! It was a great morning and we are thankful for everyone who came!
