We have had a wonderful fall semester at OFLC MOPS! Between listening to engaging speakers and completing creative crafts, this fall has flown by! We will start fresh in January with more fun and bonding. Please spread the word and bring a friend or two to the meeting on January 17, 2014. Remember spring dues will be collected at that time too. We are looking forward to a wonderful spring!

Christmas Eve Prayer
Most Loving Father, thank you for this night and for all it represents. Thank you for the hope you bestow, the peace you bring, the love you pour out, and the joy you give. We praise you most of all for Jesus, your Word made flesh. May he light our way as the holy star lit the way for the wise men. Amen
