It was a wonderful day to gather and celebrate our Godparents and Godchildren.
The spiritual relationship formed between a Godparent and Godchild at the baptismal font is a deeply spiritual and extremely important relationship. Godchildren look to their Godparents as spiritual mentors, as someone who especially cares for them. Likewise, Godparents pledge to take responsibility for the spiritual formation of their Godchildren, and are called to love and care for them throughout their lives in the context of the Church.
Godparents and Godchildren Sunday is a great opportunity for Godchildren and Godparents to strengthen their bond by attending Divine Liturgy together, returning to the Church, the very place that established their bond, and asking God’s blessing.
On Godparents and Godchildren Sunday, we renew the Grace of our baptism and the commitment we have made to the church and to one another.
