Hallam Diocese current logo was created in 2015 by designer Gianni Teruzzi.
It is an adaptation of the 15th-century Byzantine icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help which has been in the church of Sant'Alfonso di Liguori in Rome since 1499. In the Eastern Orthodox Church, this artistic iconography is known as the Virgin of the Passion or Theotokos of the Passion due to the instruments of the Passion present on the image.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help is the Patroness of the Diocese of Hallam.
