Recently my daughter presented me and my wife with our first grandchild. Although neither my daughter or son-in-law belong to a church, they feel like they’d like to do something to welcome the child into the family and honor, in the case of my daughter, one of her brothers by designating him a “godparent”. More of a “tradition” type thing than religious. They’ve started a search for a church in which to do the ceremony, but I’m thinking they won’t have much luck without registering at a parish and whatever else is required.
They did not have a religious wedding, so I’m just wondering if there is some sort of non-religious ceremony that can be performed in place of a baptism. Something more than a BBQ or a picnic. Any suggestions of websites that might have some information would be great. I haven’t found anything besides blogs (which have not been very useful).
