Can a non-Catholic (Protestant) serve as a Christian Witness in place of one of the sponsors for the initiation of an infant?

I know this is allowed in Western practice for baptism; but not sure for an Eastern Catholic initiation.

And, alas, my Eastern Code is at home, not here at my Church office.

Can someone chime in?

Thanks,
Fr. Deacon Christopher
