Who signs the Ecclesiastical Baptismal Certificate?



Who signs the Ecclesiastical Baptismal Certificate?

One (never two) godparents signs the Ecclesiastical Baptismal Certificate. If both godparents are Orthodox, a decision will need to be made which of the two will sign the certificate. If one godparent is Orthodox and the other is a non-Orthodox (and with limited participation in the ceremony), the Orthodox godparent signs the certificate. A non-Orthodox Christianís name will not appear on the certificate as a godparent of the child.

The certificate is signed at the end of the baptismal ceremony. The priest will present the certificate for signing.
