Members of the Secretariat come from the School of Leaders, and should always see themselves as being of service to the whole Movement. Being a member of the Secretariat does not remove one from being part of the School, rather their selection places them in a position to be of even greater service to the Movement.
The Secretariat supports the total work of the Movement in its three phases: Pre-Cursillo, Cursillo and Post-Cursillo (4th Day). Authority to do so comes from the local bishop who charges the Secretariat to implement the Movement according to the norms and guidelines established by National Cursillo.
The Secretariat meets the third Wednesday of every month alternating between Incarnation PAC (Centerville, Ohio) and St. Margaret Mary Cincinnati, Ohio).
