Attentiveness to the signs of the times is a part of our vocation. Not however, as though it were a kind of middle way between the clerical and lay conditions of life.
Rather, it is to be seen as a form of life to which some Christians, both clerical and lay, are called by God so that they may enjoy special gift of grace in the life of the church and may contribute, each in his own way, to the saving mission of the church.
However, the works of the religious priest are essentially the same as the works of the secular priest, and the tasks and apostolic role of the religious layman are essentially the same as the tasks and apostolic of the laity in general.
The lifestyle of the religious differs from that of the secular clergy and the laity in general primarily because of the vows that the religious professes and his community life.

For the SVDs who have been called to be religious-missionary Brothers Constitutions gives specific points: The Brothers are called to fulfill in world the missionary task of the Church, entrusted to every Christian in his Baptism and Confirmation, in the decisive way called for the religious life.

Our work among people where the Church is already firmly established lies primarily in making the entire Church aware of and responsive to he missionary obligation, in recruiting and training vocations, and in raising funds for the work of the mission. We follow the Divine Word lovingly.
Guided by his Spirit w make known the Father to men and bring them the fullness of life. This collaboration in the divine plan of salvation gives honor to the Triune God and sanctifies us. All confreres must be prepared to engage in the direct and immediate missionary activity of our Society, and be willing to sacrifice their own country, mother tongue and culture for his purpose.
Constitution see above tries to specify this missionary activity of the Society for the members who are Brothers.
Lets look more closely segments of it: It is a special gift, an invitation from God to a life of dedication and service — to live the evangelical counsels in a religious-missionary community.
Today we are becoming more aware of how this in itself is already evangelizing.
