Welcome and congratulations! You are about to embark on one of the key milestones in your child’s life in the Catholic faith.

  5. To be admitted to undertake the role of Sponsor/Godparent, a person must:

    be appointed by the candidate for baptism, or by the parents or whoever stands in their place (proxy), or failing these, by the parish or the minister; to be appointed, the person must be suitable for this role and have intention of fulfilling it;


    be not less than sixteen years of age, unless a change has been stipulated by the Archbishop, or unless the parish priest or the minister considers that there is just reason for an exception to be made;
