Moment of silence to mark week since Boston bombings

Boston will observe a moment of silence at 1:50 p.m Monday Chicago time, the exact moment the first bomb went off during last Monday’s Marathon. The week after the Boston Marathon bombing

Hundreds gathered Sunday at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross to mourn the three bombing victims, as well as MIT police officer Sean Collier, who died in Thursday’s shootout with the bombing suspects.

Sean Cardinal O’Malley led the service; he says he opposes the death penalty for the surviving suspect.
