Q. 1. I am having difficulty finding a suitable Godparent for my child. As the parent, can I act as Godparent also?
A. 1. No. According to Canon Law # 874.1.5, the parent cannot be the Godparent of his/her own child.
Can. 874 §1. "To be permitted to take on the function of sponsor a person must:
5/ not be the father or mother of the one to be baptized."
