What is the Secretariat?

The Secretariat is the administrative organizational arm of the Oakland English Cursillo Movement. Each Cursillo Movement (English, Hispanic, Filipino, etc.) within the Oakland Catholic Diocese has its own Secretariat. The responsibility of the Secretariat is to insure that the Cursillo Movement is alive and well and following the guidelines of the founding fathers.

The Officers of the Oakland English Cursillo Secretariat meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month.
