Shrine of Saint Michael Taxiarchis

A shrine was built to the Archangel Michael after an 11-year-old boy with brain cancer had a vision of the saint and was miraculously cured. Thousands flock to this landmark.

Steve Tsalickis was in a hospital bed in 1940 when he had the vision. The Archangel told him where to build the stone chapel shrine. Conveniently, it was in his family's back yard. Nov. 2021: Photo added.
