So, are they saying

that it is growing quickly again, or is still continuing to grow as it has over the years?

Charismatic movement growing quickly worldwide

The Charismatic Movement in the Catholic Church started at the beginning of the 1970s, so it already has a history of some duration. After growing quickly it went into a decline, for a lot of reasons. I expect what the writer of the headline is trying to say is that it is growing quickly again. They may also mean that it is growing outside of the Catholic Church and attracting Catholics, and that may well be true also...
