Mattituck native Kimberly Susan Tomaszewski was ordained a unitarian minister in Jamesport Saturday.

Ms. Tomaszewski, 27, was given her robes during a ceremony at the Jamesport Meetinghouse, where the North Fork Unitarian Universalist Fellowship worships every Sunday.

Ms. Tomaszewski was raised in the Southold Unitarian Universalist Church. Her family was part of a group that left the church when she was about 10, she said. The group went on to start the North Fork Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, though Ms. Tomaszewski will be serving at a church in Summit, N.J.

“I have vivid memories of church meetings in my parent’s home, in other peoples homes, until we found a space,” she recalled in an interview.
