WASHINGTON–President Barack Obama, Malia and Sasha attended church Sunday morning along with Kaye Wilson, who the girls have known forever since she is their godmother from Chicago. First Lady Michelle Obama, who is flying to Chicago Sunday to get ahead of Hurricane Sandy–so she can make her Iowa Monday stop–was not with them because she was getting ready to leave early for her trip, the White House said.

They walked from the White House across Lafayette Park to St. John’s Episcopal Church, about a block away.

The Obama family rarely attends public church services; they never picked one Washington church to attend. The White House reminded Sunday that while “they have visited St. John’s on a number of occasions, and have also worshipped with many other D.C.-area churches, including 19th Street Baptist Church, the Washington National Cathedral, Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church, Vermont Avenue Baptist Church, Metropolitan A.M.E. Church, and Evergreen Chapel at Camp David.”

One of the last times the Obama family attended church was Aug. 19; see my post about that visit HERE.

Before that, the last time the Obama family attended church in Washington D.C. was last Easter; read my post HERE.
