(Newser) – President Barack Obama and his family celebrated Easter today at St. John's Episcopal Church, across from the White House. The Obamas left the White House at midmorning for services. St. John's is popular with presidents—it's where President George W. Bush often attended services. Obama hasn't attended public church services in Washington since taking office, but attended a traditional service at St. Johns on Inauguration Day.
