OFS General Constitutions Article 17
Rule 6 Called to work together in building up the Church as the sacrament of salvation for all and, through their baptism and profession, made "witnesses and instruments of her mission," Secular Franciscans proclaim Christ by their life and words. Their preferred apostolate is personal witness in the environment in which they live and service for building up the Kingdom of God within the situations of this world.
 See Rule 1221, 17,3; Legend of the Three Companions 36; Second Letter to All the Faithful 53.
