Obama family attends Easter Services

| No Comments

The Obama family attended Easter Sunday services at St. John's Episcopal Church.

From the pool report:

"Happy Easter, everybody," the president said as he strolled past the pool. He was wearing a dark suit with a light-blue tie. The first lady was wearing a magenta-colored dress with a black shrug.

A long line of people waited outside the church. They were being admitted through a side door.

Background from the White House....

This morning, the First Family was honored to celebrate Easter Sunday with the congregation of St. John's Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C. The pastor of St. John's is Rev. Luis Leon.

The President and First Family have enjoyed worshipping with a number of D.C.-area congregations. They have attended services at 19th Street Baptist Church, the Washington National Cathedral, Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church, Vermont Avenue Baptist Church, Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, Shiloh Baptist Church, Zion Baptist Church, and multiple services at St. John's Episcopal Church and Evergreen Chapel at Camp David. They most recently attended St. John's on March 18th, 2012.
