Godparent Guidelines

When a child or an adult is to be baptized, he or she must have at least one godparent. It is customary for children to have two godparents. When there are two, one must be male and the other female.

At Least One Godparent MUST:

(a) Be Catholic

(b) Have been baptized, confirmed and have received First Communion

(c) Be 16 or older

(d) Be an active, registered member of a Roman Catholic parish

If you have other specific questions regarding godparents or baptisms, please call the parish office.
