“For by the sacrament of Confirmation the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.” Catechism of Catholic Church #1285

In the early Church, all three of the Sacraments of Initiation were celebrated at the same time with the local Bishop presiding.
