Churchgoers in a seaside resort in England state they have actually been left “gobsmacked” when U.S. President Joe Biden and the very first girl Jill Biden dropped in for a Sunday service.
The Bidens remain in Cornwall, southwest England, where the U.S. president is going to a Group of Seven rich democracies top.
On Sunday early morning, ahead of the top’s conclusion, they were seen going to mass at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in St. Ives.
“I think gobsmacked is probably a very true word,” stated Annie Fitzpatrick, 58. “It’s rather remarkable, we entered into the church and they took some information from us and I believed this is a bit uncommon.
“About 10 minutes into the service the doors opened and President Biden and Dr. Jill Biden strolled in and simply beinged in the bench simply throughout from me.”

The president “quietly got on with his prayer like everyone was doing,” she stated, including: “He looked around and said peace be with you, and I was one of them so I’m delighted. I’m not sure I will ever get over this moment completely.”
Gayle Wood, 63, stated Biden appeared to make a “very generous donation” to the church prior to leaving.
