 Introducing  Our New Assistant Minister

of Community Life and Learning!

Rev. Alix Kligenberg


After an extensive search process, the First Parish Search Committee and the FPC Board are thrilled to introduce you to our new Assistant Minister of Community Life and Learning, Alix Klingenberg!
Alix’s Bio-
I grew up in central Illinois and was lucky to be raised as a member of the Unitarian Universalist church of Bloomington Normal. As a young person in our tradition I was very active in youth group, cons, camps, and worship life. But like so many raised UU’s, I found myself drifting away from church during college. After graduating with a degree in visual art from Oberlin College, I spent twelve years as an artist and wedding photographer, creating and running a successful business from the ground up.When I returned to the UU fold as a young adult, I became a youth advisor at Unity Temple in Oak Park. After three years there, I began a Wednesday night small group worship that I called “Campfire Ministry” to address some of the emotional and spiritual needs that weren’t being met during our large group meetings. It was through this group and through my education at Meadville Lombard that I (re)discovered my passion for ministry and faith formation. I spend a lot of time thinking about how we can serve all ages in worship and in faith formation and I am excited and thrilled to continue this journey with the Duxbury congregation!I earned my Master in Divinity from Meadville Lombard and was recently welcomed into Preliminary Fellowship by the UUA. I have spent the past two years living in San Diego, working first as the Intern Minister at the First UU church of San Diego and then as a Chaplain with Sharp Home Health. I will be bringing my husband of 10 years, John, our three year old son, Quillen, and 2 black cats with me to Massachusetts.As a spiritual leader, I am committed to the values of empathy, compassion, social engagement, and honesty and strive to put these at the center of my ministry. I try to bring a creative spirit to all that I do, and I cannot wait to see what we can create together!
