To be a Secular Franciscan you have to be a Catholic of good standing, single or married (your spouse agreeing). A diocesan priest can also become a Secular Franciscan, indeed a pope can be a Secular Franciscan. A normal Catholic would of course mean that you go to Mass on Sundays regularly. Being a Secular Franciscan is a deeper commitment to your Catholic faith as a single or married person to live a Gospel orientated life.
