Godparents

When selecting Godparents for your child, please remember that the godparents provide a witness to faith for the child. Godparents must be baptized and confirmed, practicing Catholics over the age of 16. If married, the godparents must be married according to the precepts of the church. Each child must have at least one Catholic godparent. They may also have a second godparent, or Christian Witness, who is a member of another Christian church who has received valid baptism and is actively practicing Christian faith. A child can have only one male and one female as godparent/Christian witness.
