WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump spent St. Patrick’s Day morning worshipping at the “Church of the Presidents” near the White House on March 17.
The first lady turned heads when she stepped out in a snow-white coat.
The president and the first lady joined parishioners for Sunday’s 11 a.m. service at St. John’s Church, a historic yellow church across from the White House and Lafayette Park.
Every president since James Madison, who served in the 1800s, has attended a service at St. John’s, according to the church.
The Rev. W. Bruce McPherson greeted the Trumps after the short drive from the White House.
The Trumps returned to the White House after the hour-long service.
The Trumps last attended religious services in December at Washington National Cathedral. Trump had skipped spending the holiday at his Florida estate and stayed in Washington during the government shutdown.
