Remember National Godparents Day Matters

On Godparent’s Day, we honor the godparents of our past, thank the godparents supporting our children today, and look ahead to strengthen godparent relationships in the future. This one is close to my heart as I love all my godchildren and work every day to make them proud of me.

The role of a godparent is a longstanding, rich tradition, practiced across many faiths and countries around the world. Godparents provide support through faith-based milestones, and encourage character, values, and decision-making skills that contribute to community-focus and good citizenship.

Godparent relationships extend support networks for families, creating mutual commitments and shared responsibilities for the growth and development of children and teens. So, we celebrate godparents annually and their enduring contributions to children and families.

Godchildren don’t forget to reach out. Godparents keep praying for them and try some of the below ideas.

Keep your godchild’s photo in a place you’ll see every day.
Visit a local restaurant that serves food from your godchild’s country.
Add your godchild’s birthday to your calendar. Send them a card. . . or eat their favorite food in their honor.
Wear your godchild’s favorite color and take a picture to send them (and let them know why you chose the outfit!)
Rent a movie from your godchild’s country and have a movie night with your family.
Listen to your godchild’s favorite singer or music by a singer from the country they live in.
Plan a trip to visit your godchild.
