If your child is baptised in the catholic church do the god parents have to be catholic?
I always thought that they would - but we've been talking about who we might use (and there are slim pickings of males we know who are actually catholic who we would want), so were thinking about choosing someone else and wondering if that's allowed.
DH's cousins are catholic and used another family member who I know is not (although i believe they are still christian).
Is there a policy on this? I wonder if it's set by the parish...
