The celebration of your baby's baptism is a wonderful time. Family and friends come together to share the joy of welcoming a new member into the family and the faith. Did you know the Catholic Church has certain requirements for being a godparent? Often "godparent" is confused with "guardian" - but their roles are quite different. One is responsible for a child's spiritual upbringing, the other for her or his physical well-being.
There are certain requirements in Canon Law to ensure that godparents are able and ready to take on the task of teaching the faith and providing prayers and support.
