The Feast of the Kalishto Icon of the Holy Mother of God.

Commemorated September 8 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

In the monastery of the most holy Mother of God near the village of Kalishto, to the west of Struga, the holy Mother of God revealed her power and mercy through numerous miracles. Many of the sick were miraculously healed, and robbers that intended plundering or desecrating the monastery were fiercely punished by an unseen power.

The miraculous icon of the most holy Mother of God stands in the church, and nearby are two healing springs - of St Peter and St Ananias.

Not far from the main church, in a cave, stands the chapel of St Athanasius.
