Widespread prayer, support after sudden death of Holy Cross, Mendota(IL), student

MENDOTA — Holy Cross School here, as well as extended Catholic school communities throughout the region and diocese, joined in mourning, prayer and remembrance this week following the death of a Holy Cross seventh grade student who collapsed Dec. 1 while taking part in a basketball tournament at Lincoln Junior High in LaSalle.

A funeral Mass was to be celebrated at Holy Cross Church on Thursday morning, Dec. 6, for Karl Soliman, 12, the son of Shawn and Amy Soliman. Father Peter Pilon, pastor, was to be principal celebrant of the 10:30 a.m. Mass.

Karl, a multi-sport athlete as well as a trombone player, reportedly fell to the floor near the end of Holy Cross’ consolation championship game against St. Michael the Archangel School of Streator. He was transported to Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, where he died later in the day.
