On Wednesday, November 29, 1905, Marcel Lefebvre, third child of René Lefebvre and Gabrielle née Watine, was born in Tourcoing. It was too late in the day to have the newborn baptized, so Marcel François Marie Joseph was baptized in the church of Notre Dame the next day, on the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle.
