:confused2: From what i'm aware of, only a greek orthodox person can be a God-parent to this child. I would ask a local priest, and if it is so, then the non-orthodox God parent will have to either be christened him/herself, or step back during the ritual. Good luck in finding out. Post ur findings as this is a very interesting HOT topic!Hi all, two friends of mine are trying to get their baby christened. The god parents are two, male and female, one is a Christian orthodox and the other a Catholic. What are their options in terms of getting this done in an orthodox church?
Church 'law' states the Godparent has to be of the same religion although the Catholic could just lie and say they are Orthodox. I don't believe they need to prove it. Depends how the parents feel about that as well. The law also states they have to be at least 18 to christen.
End of the day it just depends on the priest and how jobsworth he is
