Godparents must be practicing Catholics, age 16 or older, have already received the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist, and, if married, married in accord with Catholic Church Law.

After their general annual meeting in 1991, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) issued the following decree on December 13:

In addition to Sunday, the days to be observed as holy days of obligation in the Latin-rite dioceses of the United States, in conformity with Canon 1246, are as follows:

  • January 1, Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God.
  • Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter, Solemnity of the Ascension.
  • August 15, Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
  • November 1, Solemnity of All Saints.
  • December 8, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception.
  • December 25, Solemnity of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Whenever January 1, August 15 or November 1 falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is abrogated.

This decree of the USCCB was approved and confirmed by the Holy See and became effective January 1, 1993.
