Franco American Orphanage Communion & Confirmation Records

The University of Massachusetts of Lowell, Center for Lowell History in partnership with the Lowell National Historical Park and the Franco American School have made available the 
Franco American Orphanage and School Records from 1908-1972.

In this database, I was able to find the Communion records for sisters, Irene & Isabel Lefebvre, born in Lowell, Massachusetts.  Their mother, Philomene (Thibault) Lefebvre, died earlier and both girls were living in the Franco American Orphanage in Lowell at the time of the 1910 census.
Below is the orphanage record showing Irene's January 1st, 1911, Communion record where she is listed at the bottom of the page.  The next image shows Isabel's First Communion record dated 25 Mar 1911.
