Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation begins at Cathedral of the Holy Spirit in Grade 7, and it is a 2-year preparation program. Confirmation usually takes place shortly after Easter.
