Our Minister & Staff
Rev. Elizabeth Assenza, Church Minister
Rev. Elizabeth Assenza (she/her) joined the Unitarian Universalist Church of Wakefield as minister in August 2020. She is passionate about building faith communities that respond to the needs of the world around us through actions of love and justice. Rev. Elizabeth is excited to explore ways UUCW can serve its members and friends, as well as the town of Wakefield and surrounding communities.
Rev. Elizabeth comes to UUCW with a background in hospice chaplaincy. Prior to ministry, she was a teacher and worked in membership and program development for the Girl Scouts. Rev. Elizabeth is a New York City native and was raised in Vermont, both of which shape her sense of where she is “from.” She graduated from Union Theological Seminary and has lived in Massachusetts for three years, where she has built a tight-knit community of friends and care.
In her free time, Rev. Elizabeth enjoys knitting, reading speculative fiction, and running. She lives in a lively home with one roommate and her cat, Ernestine.
