I have a question that I hope someone can assist me with. I have been recently asked to be a Godparent to my best friend’s third child. I am thrilled they’ve asked me to have this responsibility and want the job.
I was raised in a split-christian home. My father is catholic and my mother was presbyterian, which is what I was baptized. Religion always has been an confusing to me. I believe in God. I pray on a normal basis. Just not at a church. I have never felt I needed to. I am running into problems with not belonging to a church in regards to my godparent appointment.
I know what the requirements to be a godparent for a catholic child are.
- The Godmother is catholic- Fulfilling the rule that atleast one has to be catholic and received the holy sacrament and been confirmed. CHECK
- The other person (me) had to been baptized into a christian faith. CHECK
- Needs a letter from a pastor, priest, etc saying they’re registered at a church and an active member. ISSUE
What can I do other than the obvious? I don’t really want to go into a church and act like I’m interested in joining just to get this letter? I want to be able to sleep well at night.
