No, usually Secular Franciscans live in their own home. As such the Secular Franciscan way of life is an authentic way of life founded by Saint Francis for those who did not wish to become religious brothers and sisters living in a convent or friary. The commitment to prayer and fraternity are the same in that Secular Franciscans usually meet once a month in a church hall or elsewhere. Seculars tend to live close by each other so that travelling is not such a problem.
