    Begun in 1954 by Father Phillip Ruh, whom was 70 at the time. He died in 1962 before it was completed. Although he had produced many architectural drawing for his churches, nothing on paper was found of the grotto. It was completed after his death to what was an assumed vision of his design, but no one can really be sure of his intention.
