    One of my good friend is trying to locate the church she was baptized in Portugal. Her family has no recollection and her current church will not allow her to be a godparent without it. Please let me know if there is someone who can help her. Thank you.

    Please note that St. Elizabeth of Portugal, is NOT the Patron Saint of the Third Order of Saint Francis, as your website: Saint Calendar states. The Patron Saint(s) of the Third Order of Saint Francis, also known as the Secular Franciscan Order, are: St. Elizabeth of Hungry and St. Louis IX King Of France. Thank you.
