A Baptism requires a Godparent. You may have 2 Godparents. One must be a Comfirmed Catholic and a memeber of a Church, a Baptized non-catholic can be a Christian Witness and help the Godparents raise the child in a mature Faith. Godparents are an integral part of the covenantal relationship. They, along with the parents, are responsible for the faith development of the child being baptized. Those serving as Godparents must be willing to help the child they sponsor lead a Christian life in harmony with baptism and fulfill the obligations connected.
