Holy Baptism – Godparents

Godparents:

 

To be a
Godparent is an honour and a privilege. Your duties are specifically religious
as implied by the title “God” and the Church asks a number of things of you:

 

·
You must believe in God

 

·
You must be baptised (christened)

 

·
You must help to bring up your
Godchildren in the Christian Faith and we ask you (along with the parents) to:

 

·
Make sure that they come to
Church/Sunday School every Sunday; Pray for them; make sure they have a copy of
the Bible; teach them the Lord’s Prayer and the Ten Commandments; make sure
they are taught the Catechism and are brought to the Bishop for Confirmation (we
can help with the last two)

 

·
They are some other ways in which
you can help: Visit them regularly; come to see them when they are in eg school
Nativity Plays; give them good Christian presents at Birthday/Christmas eg
Christian DVDs or books with Bible Stories/Stories of the Saints and Christian
Heroes like St Francis or St David
