“For the gifts and the call of God are
irrevocable.” - ROMANS 11:29
Each of us is part of God’s dream and
a such He has a special mission in
mind for each of us. He has given us
the gifts we need to accomplish that
mission. We are called to be good
stewards by using those gifts to do
the work that He has planned for each
of us. If we deny
our gifts or fail to
use them as God calls us to use
them, then some part of His dream
and works will be left undone.

Becoming a godparent/sponsor in the Catholic Church
Being chosen as a godparent for baptism is an honor, for the godparent traditionally becomes a spiritual companion to the one being baptized in a journey of faith.
Please decide if your faith life makes you ready to publicly pledge that you have been leading a life in harmony with the Catholic tradition. Godparents should be both role models and resource persons, individuals who are at ease with the practice of their faith and would normally be considered as “active Catholics.” They should be people who are comfortable with answering questions about their personal relationship with God as experienced in the Catholic Communion, even if they are unsure of all the technicalities.
Godparents should be people who are interested in and will continue to spiritually support the “godchild” in the years ahead.
Catholic Church Requirements - To be a godparent, a person must be:
- A baptized Catholic who has received the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion and is practicing the Catholic faith.
- Mature enough to undertake the responsibility.
- A member of the Catholic Church canonically free to carry out this responsibility. If a person is married, the marriage must have been a Catholic marriage, not just a civil marriage. Catholics currently living in a marriage not considered valid by the Catholic Church or cohabitating are excluded from being a Godparent.
- Someone other than the father or mother, spouse or fiancé of the one who is to be baptized.
* In order to be a Godparent/Sponsor St. Mary Magdalen Church requires that the person be registered member of our parish at least 6 months previous to the date of the Baptism.
