The Sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church are generally given in a specific order : Baptism, Confession, Communion, Confirmation, Marriage OR Holy Orders, Last Rites.

The Quincinera is generally celebrated around the 15th birthday (quince being Spanish for 15) and meant to celebrate Confirmation. By the time of Confirmation, a Catholic girl should have already received Baptism, Confession, and Communion.
