The title of this icon is derived from the belief that the Theotokos appeared in a vision to Richeldis de Faverches, a devout Saxon noblewoman, in A.D. 1061 (when England was still considered part of the One Orthodox Catholic Church) in the village of Walsingham in Norfolk, England. Lady Richeldis had a Holy House built in Walsingham which became a shrine and place of pilgrimage, and the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham is the most renowned sanctuary of the Mother of God in the whole of the British Isles.

Today, Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Anglicans make pilgrimage to venerate the Theotokos there. Presently there is a chapel dedicated to Orthodox Christian worship there.

    Gift for baptism

    Baptising a child called Lily and finding this to have as her icon as another of her names can translate to Mary for the Theotokas was wonderful. The icon is in her room so she can crawl over and give the other baby a kiss and is so detailed and beautiful. We ordered a larger one and it almost shines.

    Our Lady of Walsingham!

    I as overjoyed to find this icon at UMS as I had never come across an Orthodox icon of Our Lady of Walsingham. This is very much appreciated since I have a lot of English ancestry. It is a very beautiful image of the Theotokos to boot! Very high quality icon that was carefully packaged. Thanks, UMS!

    The beauty of the Theotokos

    Posted by Fr Jason Hess on 14th Sep 2018

    This was a custom icon I had UMS do for the parish I serve, and I must say, they did a fantastic job of capturing the beauty of the Theotokos. I ordered the XXL size, and it looks incredible when looking at it up close. I was overjoyed when I heard that UMS planned to offer it to the public as the really did do a wonderful job with this icon of Our Lady.
