Obama Walks To Easter Service At Nearby Church

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama attended Easter services at an Episcopal church near the White House where past presidents frequently have worshipped.
 
The president, first lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia made the short walk across Lafayette Park to St. John's Church Sunday morning.
 
Obama was greeted by several parishioners with handshakes and smiles as the first family was returning to their seats from Holy Communion, which the four also participated in.
 
The Obamas have previously worshipped at St. John's, including Easter services in 2009 and 2012. They attended Easter service at Shiloh Baptist Church in 2011.
 
A pew nine rows back from the altar at St. John's carries a small brass plaque designating it as "The President's Pew." Church history claims that every president since James Madison has visited.
