CHAPTER III. Those to be Confirmed

Can. 889 §1. Every baptized person not yet confirmed and only such a person is capable of receiving confirmation.

§2. To receive confirmation licitly outside the danger of death requires that a person who has the use of reason

be suitably instructed, properly disposed, and able to renew the baptismal promises.

Can. 890 The faithful are obliged to receive this sacrament at the proper time. Parents and pastors of souls, especially

pastors of parishes, are to take care that the faithful are properly instructed to receive the sacrament and come to

it at the appropriate time.

Can. 891 The sacrament of confirmation is to be conferred on the faithful at about the age of discretion unless the

conference of bishops has determined another age, or there is danger of death, or in the judgment of the minister

a grave cause suggests otherwise.
