They must be Catholics who have already been Confirmed, and have received the Holy Eucharist.
They should be leading a life in harmony with the faith; ie. practicing Catholics (attending Mass), if married, in a valid Catholic Marriage, etc.
They may not be the father or mother of the one to be baptized.
You may choose on or two godparents. If you choose two, one must be male and the other female.
The godparents must have the qualifications for and intention of carrying out this duty.
**Non-Catholic Witness (Can. 874.2) A baptized person belonging to a non-Catholic ecclesial (church) community may be admitted as a witness to baptism but only along with a Catholic Godparent. This person is not formally called a Godparent, but will be referred to as a Christian Witness.
