March 23, 2017 at Richard Klarchek Information Commons in Chicago.


After a week in jail following an Iraq War protest in 2003, Chris Haw, as a disaffected evangelical, moved into “America’s most dangerous city” to start a small community in an abandoned house and work with a Catholic church. He worked there for a decade as a teacher, reclaimed woodworker, community organizer, potter, and carpenter. Joining with the church’s liturgy, theology, and service with the poor, Haw came to see Catholic faith and practice more starkly against the backdrop of societal decay, war, despair, and abandonment. In his lecture, “Rust Belt Apocalypse and the Eucharist,” Haw will share how a poetic mixture of myth and logic, an active patience amidst godlessness, and the drama of scapegoating as symbolized in the Mass all permeate his ongoing conversion and research.
