Frequently Asked Questions About Baptism
Who can be a godparent?
The godparents are the link between the family and the Church. In addition to representing the Christian community, godparents help the parents to bring up their children in the faith by their witness and prayers. To be a godparent is a privileged service in the Church and a special ministry.

Church law (Canon Law #872-874) says that the godparent (he/she) be at least sixteen years of age, have received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist), and lead a life of faith in harmony with the duty that he/she is undertaking. The godparent needs to be a practicing Catholic. The godparent may not be one of the parents of the person being baptized. Only one godparent is required for baptism and a maximum of two (one male and one female) can be recorded in the baptismal record. When pastoral circumstances warrant it, one of the sponsors may be a baptized non-Catholic Christian as a witness of the Baptism.
