SALT LAKE CITY -- White House officials Sunday confirmed President Obama and President Thomas S. Monson of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will meet Monday in Washington, D.C.

Church officials won't release much about the visit, but are calling it a scheduled courtesy meeting. It will be held in the Oval Office.

It is unknown how long the meeting will be, what topics will be discussed or whether anyone else will be in attendance.

This will be the first meeting between the two leaders.

The last time an LDS prophet and U.S. president met at the White House was in 2004, when President Bush presented President Gordon B. Hinckley with the Medal of Freedom.
