Baptism is the first Christian sacrament and admits a person of any age into the Catholic Church.
The anointing of a baptized person with Sacred Chrism by the local bishop usually happens in a person's 8th grade year. Confirmation can take place at any age after a person's baptism.
The Eucharist is the central sacrament of the Catholic community and its celebration is the reason a parish exists. Many make their first Communion around 2nd grade but first reception of Communion can happen at any age.
