Thank you for your willingness to serve as a godparent!
What is a godparent?
A godparent, together with the parent(s), presents a child for baptism. A godparent is ready and able to help the newly baptized on the road of Christian life (Can. 872, CCC 1255).
In the short video below, Father Mike Schmitz shares what it means to be a godparent. He explains, “you don’t have to be perfect to be a godparent! All you have to do is do your best to love Jesus, to love the Church, and to love this child [to be baptized].”
