Requirements of Godparents

As stated in Canon 874

  1. Must be at least 16 years of age.
  2. Must be a baptized Catholic who has completed the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
  3. May not be the parent of the child being baptized.
  4. If married, must be married in the Catholic Church, regularly attending Holy Mass on Sunday, going to Confession, and living their faith (not living in sin). The two godparents do not have to be married to one another.
  5. A baptized non-Catholic may not be a godparent but may serve as a witness along with a Catholic godparent.
  6. Non-baptized persons may not sere as witnesses or godparents.

You can look at the precepts of the Church in CCC 2041-2043
