The General Constitutions of the Secular Franciscan Order contain 103 Articles within three Chapters, covering the practical application and organization of the Order under our Rule. The Vatican's Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated Life and the Societies of Apostolic Life approved and confirmed the current revised version of the Constitutions on December 8, 2000.
