Ave Maria University will be holding a memorial Mass for Jon Scharfenberger, a graduate of Ave Maria and Students for Life of America employee.
Scharfenberger passed away last week due to complications from injuries he sustained from the same car accident that claimed the life of SFLA leader Kortney Blythe Gordon and her pre-born daughter, Sophy, on October 8th.
The two were returning from a pro-life conference. Scharfenberger was 22.
The family said in a statement, according to the Ave Herald
, saying, "Jon was born a perfect baby boy, grew into a pure and holy young man, and is now our saint in heaven. He lives in our hearts forever."
The Mass will take place on Thursday October 27th at 5 p.m. at the auditorium.
