Msgr. Eugene Gomulka.
Msgr. Eugene Gomulka, a former U.S. Navy chaplain whose endorsement
to continue as a military chaplain was revoked by the Archdiocese of
Military Services in March without a hearing (NCR, Aug. 13), was married
in Yale Divinity School Chapel Aug. 7. Gomulka had said he had no
immediate plans to marry, but in a letter to NCR he said that after his
endorsement was revoked, rumors about his already being married were
widespread. Given those rumors, he wrote, the wedding date was moved
forward. Gomulka said he had earlier been in contact with his bishop
regarding applying for laicization, and he and the woman who is now his
wife had been considering a May 2005 wedding.
