(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.

A cold front has moved through the area late this afternoon in the early evening giving us a few showers and storms. A few isolated showers and storms have developed ahead of the front and could give us the chance for rain late this morning as well. Winds will be breezy today from the south ahead of our cold front. Once the cold front moves through, temperatures will be much cooler for the rest of the week. Highs will be below average in the 70s. Dry and sunny conditions look to continue through the rest of the work week into the weekend.
