Manuel (Manny) Meno

Chair

Mr. Manny Meno, a former career Army logistics officer, moved to Ewa Beach in June 2016 after retiring from the United States Army, Pacific (USARPAC) at Fort Shafter. Born, raised and educated in Guam, he grew up in a Catholic home where his strong ties to the faith began. Saying the Nine nights of Novena yearly in July, serving as an altar boy at the village church, and receiving five of the seven sacraments before departing the island in 1988 has strengthened his beliefs and practice as a Christian. Throughout his years of service in the military, he and his family have continued to devote their time in practicing their faith at 13 different churches and parishes during their assignments. Manny served in the Knights of Columbus, was a Eucharistic Minister, and as a family unity they devoted volunteer time to running the Hospitality Ministry as part of their children's Confirmation Sacrament community service in South Korea. Life after the military is a significant adjustment and finding Immaculate Conception Ewa was a blessing where he and his wife Lucille felt a warm welcome at their first mass and where they will continue to devote their time in serving the parish.

Manny has a bachelor's degree in Business Management from the University of Guam and a master's degree in Business Administration from Webster University. In his spare time, Manny enjoys travelling, hiking, and a variety of water activities in Hawaii. He is married to Lucille and they have two children.

Kathyrine Cabalar

Member

Aloha! My name is Kathyrine Cabalar (Kat), I am currently a junior at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa and I've been a member of this parish since 2010. I've been a Catholic all my life, but growing up, I was never really knowledgeable in this religion nor did I feel rooted enough in it to learn. This changed in 2013 when I participated in my first Couples for Christ-Youth Ministry Retreat, which sparked the fire in me that fuels the love and passion I have for this faith today. I am now one of the heads for the young adult ministry under the Couples for Christ community as well as a catechist for the high school Confirmation candidates, a Lector, and a Eucharistic Minister here at Immaculate Conception. This church has become a home for me and I am incredibly honored and excited to continue serving God and this community.

Immaculate Conception Church holds an extraordinary place in my heart. My family has two generations worth of memories celebrating Mass, Confirmations, Baptisms, and Weddings all at Immaculate Conception Church.
