Our History. First named The Confessor, our publication originated as a parish bulletin at St. John the Confessor Parish in Ipswich, Massachusetts. Later renamed THE STRUGGLER, it was attached to Saints Peter and Paul Mission in Brentwood, Tennessee, before becoming a diocesan publication. THE STRUGGLER is now published in Tucson, Arizona. Since the repose of Father John Bockman, once its chief contributing editor, Presbytera Valerie Bockman is continuing as editor.
Our Logo. Our logo is an adaptation of a gold leaf drawing of Saints Peter and Paul from the bottom of a third-century glass bowl. Such bowls with icons were given as gifts on special occasions in the lives of the recipients, such as at Baptism, Chrismation, Marriage, or an anniversary. When the owner reposed, the bottom of the bowl with its icon was set into the cement covering his grave.
