AND OUR CALLING

ABOUT THE MARIAN SISTERS OF EUCHARISTIC LOVE

“Let us be firmly resolved to serve God with our whole heart and life”.
St. Francis de Sales

Marian Sisters of Eucharistic LoveThe Marian Sisters of Eucharistic Love (MASEL) were founded by Christ through His servant, Mother Stan Mumuni, to save the lives of the unwanted children of Ghana, and to spread the Gospel through their actions and example. The sisters live a prayer- filled, action-packed and joy-filled life, providing for the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the children and their community.

In many areas of tribal Ghana children born as twins or with any type of disability can be killed by their parents or tribal leaders because they are considered evil. Even if a child is born while the tribe is having difficulty, the child may be blamed, accused as a witch and put to death. Mother Stan and her sisters rescue these children and show them the love God has for them. The Marian Sisters of Eucharistic Love started the Nazareth for God’s Children in a small apartment with two children, then five, then twenty… The Sisters now have more than one hundred of God’s most vulnerable and precious children in their family. Each one a gift given by God.

Marian Sisters of Eucharistic Love“Our children come to us from these local tribal communities. Until we are able to educate the locals and open their hearts to change this superstition, the Marian Sisters will take in these greatest of God’s blessings, and provide for them the love they are so deserving”.   Mother Stan

MASEL sisters are edified with daily Mass, Adoration and meditation, which fills them with the Joy and strength necessary to spread His message to the children, staff and members of the local community. They pray fervently for the needs of the children, their donors, the Church and the special needs sent to them from around the world. If you would like the sisters to dedicate a holy hour or rosary “JUST FOR YOU”, please visit the Donations and Prayer Request page.

Since nothing good can be done without our Lord’s blessing, the sisters gain all the graces they need from Him through their faith and acts of daily life. If you think that you may be called to join the sisters and make their vocation your own, visit our vocations page here. Below is a synopsis of the sister’s daily life. 

MEET OUR FOUNDER, MOTHER STAN MUMUNI

“Holiness consists simply in doing God’s will, and being just what God wants us to be.”
St. Thérèse de Lisieux

Mother Stan MumundiMost children ponder what their future holds, what they are called to do, and who they are called to be. Some of us even into adulthood have not discerned God’s will for our lives. Not so with our Mother Stan Mumuni. At the early age of eight, Stan Terese Mario Mumuni heard God’s call in her heart. She was to serve others by becoming a nun. After ten years of religious life in Nigeria, she heard God’s promptings even more strongly in her heart. She was to return to her home country of Ghana, West Africa to start a new order dedicated to saving the lives of children considered “too evil to live”, and to teach that ALL God’s children are blessings and deserving of life. The “Marion Sisters of Eucharistic Love”, MASEL, was formed and given ecclesiastic approval by the Holy See in September of 2009.

“How could I turn away even one child? I would be turning away the child Jesus!”
Mother Stan Mumuni, 2019

Sister Stan MumundiSince their humble beginnings, the Maran Sisters have moved to a new home which includes the formation house, dormitory, chapel, library and the all the children at the Nazareth Home. Primarily through the sister’s prayer and Mother’s begging, she has turned a vacant field into a joy-filled home for her sisters, the children, and staff. And as the home has moved and expanded, the need for prayers, vocations and donations has expanded as well. Pray, hope and don’t worry, said Saint Padre Pio. Mother does pray, and she hopes joyfully. Worry? She hasn’t the time for such a thing!
