The shrine is small, has only a few rows of church pews, has no air conditioning, and no dedicated parking lot, although you can park on the street near the shrine. But what makes the shrine incredible is the story behind the inspiration of the shrine, and all of the items inside the shrine that make it beautiful (the stained... More

There is a back story on how the shrine was built and I recommend that all read it. I pray to our Lord and to St Michael, both... More

My family went to the shrine for the first time last week since moving here 10 years ago. The old beauty of the shrine in humbling to say the least. To read of all the miracles that have taken place over the years is unbelievable. This is such a calm soothing place to go and be at peace with yourself.... More

I had the privilege of visiting this shrine and was greatly impressed with the tremendous amount of peace and wonderful energy that I felt there! Fortunately, I live about 90 minutes from the shrine and plan to return there for 9 consecutive Tuesdays to complete the novena to Archangel Michael for a special request. The story of the miracle that... More

Please google the story of this Shrine and why it was built in the back yard of family home. The healings and answered prayers at this beautiful place made me take pause and realize what a blessed and sacred little place this. I personally believe in God but even if you do not believe this is a very special spiritually... More

Like so many of such blessed grounds there is a sense of peace and belief that all will be right with God in control...this I believe with all my heart. I live in the area and friends gave my the gift of visiting it several times and I will keep going to ask for many more healings.

Located in a residential historic neighborhood, this chapel shrine represents the dedication of one Greek family that experienced a miracle in the saving of a young boy.....the religious furnishings are from big and small believers/donors like amazing stained glass windows. Home to 300 year old icon. Emblematic of the Greek heritage OF THIS SMALL Florida town.

Anyone interested should really Google history of this quaint small chapel that was built because of a promise to God if a local child was healed of a grave illness many years ago... and he was. I lived in Tarpon Springs for several years before finally stopping by to see what it was all about and luckily I was there... More
