HILLTOWN, Pa. — A slain Wheeling Jesuit student will be remembered Saturday in Pennsylvania during a funeral Mass.

Kevin Figaniak, 21, of Perkasie, Pa., died Sunday at a Pittsburgh hospital from injuries sustained in an attack in Wheeling.

Police said Figaniak and a friend were attacked Saturday night by a group of men while walking to the Wheeling Jesuit campus. Two suspects were arrested Tuesday in the incident.

Figaniak’s family has established a memorial fund at the university in his memory.

Figaniak was a senior business major at Wheeling Jesuit University. He played on the school’s varsity lacrosse team and also was a member of the school’s club hockey team.

The funeral Mass for Figaniak is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at Our Lady of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Hilltown, Pa.

    My sincere sympathies and prayers to the Figaniak family for the loss of an obviously exceptional student and athlete.

    Please keep in mind both "Thy Will be done" but also, "that justice is Mine".
