As a godparent what is his offical duty towards the children?

raven :P

As I am becoming a godmother in two days, there is no offical duty I think, but you´re actually supposed to "teach your godchild how to be a good christian". And of course you have to give presents to them on Christmas...;)

You are supposed to be responsible for the children's spiritual well-being, teach them about their faith and see to it that they practice it regularly.

Many godparents also remember special days in the lives of their godchildren such as birthdays, christmas and other holidays, marriages, graduations and so on.

When one of my close friends got married she chose to have her godfather give her away instead of her stepfather of a few years, because her godfather had been one of her late father's closest friends.

I think it is very different when your godparents are siblings of your parents or close friends of your parents. If they see you on a regular basis it is easier for them to be a significant presence in your life.

Another moral duty is to substitute the child's parents, in case of their death.

That's very true. But, not many people do that these days. More conscientious people may choose a godparent or have already chosen those who they would like to be their children's guardain in event of their deaths.
