What is my role as a godparent?


#1

I have been made god parent to my brother, now 35 . When they were young I didn't do as I should have to help in their faith formation.My brother made it through confirmation and marriage in the Catholic Church. They now have a child of the age of 8 that hasnt been baptized and they currently don't go to church.
I also have a nephew whom is now 28. He was baptized in the church....and i am afraid that's as far as he made it..he was married in an outdoor ceremony they also has one infant and he currently doesn't attend church.:
Is there anything you can suggest at ths later time in our life that I could do to help.
