The Presidential Planner

ABC News' Sunlen Miller reports: 

President Obama starts his Tuesday by hosting an Easter Prayer Breakfast in the East Room of the White House.

Christian leaders from across the country will join the President at this breakfast "for a time of prayer, reflection, and celebration of Easter," the White House said of the annual breakfast.

Afterwards Mr. Obama will hold a town hall in Northern Virginia, the first of three this week across the country  "to discuss his vision for reducing our debt and bringing down our deficit, based on the values of shared responsibility and shared prosperity."

"You know, this is — can be extremely arcane and esoteric stuff when people — when Americans out here are worrying principally about the economy and job creation and gas prices," White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday,"And he wants to explain why, for the sake of our economy, we need to move forward on fiscal reform, share responsibility and share the burden, as we go forward, to create an America that is stronger and creating more jobs in the future."

After returning back to the White House the president will convene a meeting on immigration reform with, "a broad group of business, law enforcement, faith, and current and former elected and appointed leaders from across the political spectrum."

In the late afternoon, the President will meet one-on-one with Secretary of Defense Gates in the Oval Office.
