Movements in the Catholic Church are groups of church members following a specific spirituality given to them by their founder. In the case of officially recognized movements, this specificity is in harmony with teachings of the Magisterium while emphasizing a specific way of Christian life.
Church Movements include:
- Charismatic Renewal
- Communion and Liberation
- Regnum Christi
- The Schönstatt Movement
- Couples for Christ
- Jesus Youth
Opus Dei, while sharing some of the characteristics of the movements listed above is not categorised by Catholic Church authorities as a Movement, because as a personal prelature, akin to a diocese or a military ordinariate, it is more closely overseen by the hierarchical and jurisdictional structure of the Church. The Neocatechumenal Way also does not view itself as a Movement, but rather as a ministry for adult faith formation.
