Rev. Kelli Clement joined the St. Croix Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (SCUUF) as minister in the spring of 2018. Rev. Clement, who is also an assistant minister of the First Unitarian Society in Minneapolis, is highly regarded for her tireless work throughout the state and country for justice and compassion. She preaches at SCUUF on the first Sunday of each month and provides other ministerial services.
“I fell in love with the St. Croix community and with the amazing people that make up the SCUUF fellowship,” says Rev. Clement. “I continue to be excited to form strong bonds and to create shared ministry with this exceptional, growing congregation that loves to laugh together.”
Unitarian Universalism affirms and promotes principles grounded in the humanistic teachings of the world’s religions. UU spirituality is unbounded, drawing from scripture and science, nature and philosophy, personal experience and ancient tradition.
“We are diverse in faith, ethnicity, history and spirituality, and we are inclusive of all sexual orientations and gender identities — all aligned in our desire to make a difference for the good,” said Rev. Clement. “UUs have an uncompromising track record of siding with love, justice, and peace. At the same time, we are committed to examining our own part in upholding systems of oppression, and we work actively to dismantle such systems.”
Rev. Clement received her Master of Divinity at United Theological Seminary and did undergraduate studies at the University of Texas and University of Wisconsin. She was a training and curriculum consultant for the national Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and served as executive director at the Minnesota Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice. Rev. Clement is also a certified facilitator for Prepare Enrich Marriage Preparation Inventory, and Intercultural Developmental Inventory.
