How can we change a Godparent?

My 9 year old daughter would like a new Godmother. The Godmother we chose for her is my ex sister-in-law whom has since changed her faith. She can no longer contribute to helping raise our daughter in the Catholic faith. How do I go about this?

The following link should explain the Church’s position on changing a godparent. If you have any further questions, please contact Catholic Answers directly.
