Several years ago, a Catholic friend of mine (I am nondenominational Christian) asked me to be the Godparent for her child. I was honored and, of course, agreed. They have lived away from here, so it has been hard to get to know the little girl very well. But, they have recently moved back to the area and the little girl will take her first communion at the end of the month. I'm wondering, what role does a Godparent play in this milestone (if any)? I've been invited to the mass and a reception following mass. Are there any traditional gifts? Suggestions and any other info would be greatly appreciated!
