The primary resource for being a Catholic godparent.
Being a Godparent explores the important role of godparents in the life of their newly baptized godchild. From standing in at the child’s baptism to nurturing a future relationship with them, Gallagher and Gasslein explore each step of the journey. Gallagher offers advice about keeping a godchild in one’s prayers, telling them stories and spending time with them and supporting them through adolescence.
The rules of being a godparent are basic: be at least 16 years old, be a baptized and active Catholic and be chosen by the parents. The responsibilities and rewards, on the other hand, keep growing by the year.
