The rule and life of the Secular Franciscans is this: to observe the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ by following the example of St. Francis of Assisi who made Christ the inspiration and the center of his life with God and people. SFO Rule, Chapter 2, Art. 4

Secular Franciscans are people...
•with a Franciscan spirit, perspective, and ideals;
•with the ability to reflect Gospel values in their lives and accept conversion as needed;
•with a willingness to accept the Secular Franciscan Order as a primary and permanent commitment;
•with a desire to build up the Church and the Kingdom of God;
•with a sense of Franciscan responsibility for social action; and
•with a desire for contemplative prayer.
