Pool report on church visit below...


POTUS left his vacation residence @ 11:05 a.m. local time to go to church on Marine Corps Base Hawaii. The name of the church is St. Michael's and it is the base chapel, according to White House press officer.

About 100 people will be in attendance. The whole family is there and some friends. No word yet on what friends. Several poolers will go into the church for the whole mass. "Joy To The World" was being sung by a full band and clapping parishioners as pool reporters were ushered in.

POTUS and family were in a front row and the celebrant said he was especially thankful to have the Obamas in attendance.
