Statement on Behalf of Cardinal Blase J. Cupich on shooting death of Mt. Carmel High School Student Isaiah Wade

Dec. 8, 2020

Eight people were shot, two of them fatally, Monday in Chicago. One was 15-year-old Isaiah Wade, a sophomore at Mount Carmel High School. Another young life cut short by senseless violence. Another family left to mourn, forever altered. Mt. Carmel High School is a close community and we keep Isaiah, his family, friends and school staff in our prayers during this unimaginably heartbreaking time.
