(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Those of the Catholic Faith are celebrating National Catholic Schools Week.

Students gathered at Bishop LeBlond Wednesday morning for an all-school mass that included St. Joseph's three Catholic Elementary Schools as well as St. Gregory's in Maryville and Bishop Hogan in Chillicothe.

School's leadership are hopeful for the future of catholic schools. They say that with potential changes in a school voucher system at the federal level along with other policy changes can make the private schools more affordable.


"The new tax plan that allows for college savings accounts to be used to pay for elementary and high school for private schools and catholic schools. Parents can get a credit on their state taxes. That's always an incentive," LeBlond principal Jeff Sullivan said.

Temperatures started out on the mild side with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Monday was another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. With the dry conditions outdoor burning should be avoided Monday and Tuesday as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
