The story behind the Shrine is very moving, and a must see for somebody looking for a spiritual site in the area. The church is small, but beautiful and reminds me of the churches back home. It is close to the dock area of Tarpon Springs just yp the street from St. Nicholas so it is convenient, and no reason... More

I had been wanting to come here for a very long time, ever since I had read an article about the miracle that happened here and the subsequent miracles that have happened since. It was a truly moving experience, and I can't wait to come back again soon!! Please make the trip, it is completely worth it!!

I immediately felt the presence of Divine love and power. I prayed over a candle, which I then lit to burn my prayers to St. Michael. The little chapel property is well maintained and there was a very friendly woman attending to the candles, which were $5 donation for the large and $1 for the small.

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

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

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.
