Not sure this is the correct forum, but here goes. Many years ago, when I was a teenager, I was an altar server in my parish, and I used to assist at baptisms. The pastor would baptise children on the first Sunday of the month only, so on some occasions there would be 5 or 6 children to be baptised.
One Sunday, a young woman arrived with a child, 10 minutes before the service was due to start, and asked to have her 4-year-old daughter baptised. The only peson with her was her daughter - no father, no other relatives and no godparents. The priest agreed to baptise the child there and then, turned to me and said “Mark can be the godfather.” I took the godfather’s part, but after the service, my pastor gave me the woman’s address and said “You’re responsible for making sure she brings the child up as Catholic. That’s where she lives.”
I’ve never contacted the woman or her daughter since the baptism. I was only about 16 at the time, lost the address years ago, and thought it was a bit much to expect a complete stranger to be that involved in the daughter’s life. Since then, I’ve been worried that I should have done more - should I have done or was the priest expecting a bit too much?
