Q. 1. How old does a Catholic have to be to qualify to become a Godparent?
A. 1. To qualify as a Godparent, a person must "be not less than 16 years of age, unless a different age has been stipulated by the diocesan Bishop, or unless the parish priest or the minister considers that there is a just reason for an exception to be made;" [Canon Law # 874.1.2]
