She stated, “I’m making my gift in honor of Fr. Sullivan. Fr. Sullivan was the first chaplain at Mercyhurst, from 1926-1933, but also served as professor, farmer, landscape designer and supervisor of the grounds. It was at the height of the Great Depression when he recruited stone masons and workers to construct the Mercyhurst grotto from the line of unemployed men who were being served food from the Mercyhurst kitchen. I love this picture of Fr. Sullivan, as he is surrounded by all of the stones and boulders that were found on the Mercyhurst campus; an undeveloped spans of land at the time of 1932.”
