Confirmation

"Every baptized person not yet confirmed can and should receive the sacrament of Confirmation.
Since Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist form a unity, it follows that "the faithful are obliged to receive
this sacrament at the appropriate time," for without Confirmation and Eucharist, Baptism is certainly valid and efficacious, but Christian initiation remains incomplete." - Catechism of the Church, 1306.
