Choosing Godparents

It is the duty of Christian parents to pass on the most precious gift of all, the gift of faith, to “bring the child up in the practice of the faith, [and to] see that the divine life which God gives them is kept safe from the poison of sin, to grow always stronger in their hearts” (Rite of Baptism for Children).

It is the duty of Christian godparents to assist the parents with this all-important task. The godparent is “able and ready to help the newly baptized . . . on the road of the Christian life” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, No. 1255).

Requirements to be a godparent...

  • Godparents should be one male and one female
  • At least one godparent must be a fully initiated Catholic (having received the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation)
  • Godparents must be at least 16 years old
