The word curate is a noun and refers to a cleric who is deemed to be responsible for a parish. The word curate comes from the Middle English word "curat" and can be traced back to the Latin word "cura" meaning spiritual charge or care.

A second meaning of the word curate is as a verb and refers to a person or office that acts as a curator; a kind of organizer and overseer. The phrase to curate refers to probably that. It might refer to the act of looking after or overseeing some establishment. Typically curators are found looking after and organizing museums and art shows. In the way the original Latin word implies they care for the exhibition or artifacts at a museum as well.
