Sacred Heart Church Baptism Requirements
The maximum number of godparents is two. (One Female and One Male). One godparent is sufficient. (Male or Female).
Each Godparent must:
•be prepared to assist the person being baptized and his/her parents through his/her support, example, encouragement and prayer.
•be at least 16 years of age.
•have received the Catholic Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation.
•attend Catholic Mass every Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation.
•if married, be married in the Catholic Church.
•if single, be not cohabitating with a significant other.
CONFESSION FOR GODPARENTS & PARENTS WITH A CATHOLIC PRIEST BEFORE THE CEREMONY:
This is OPTIONAL but very much recommended. We say it is “optional” because no one can be forced to repent of their sins and to accept God’s love and mercy and grace.
