He's a reverend... He IS a vicar....


iantimothy Posted: Jan 13th 2012

They call him vicar, because, well..... He is one. It would be like calling a priest "father" or a Protestant minister "reverend"

puppylove Posted: Jan 15th 2012

but thank you forshowing me:)in fact thank you all|-)


iantimothy Posted: Jan 15th 2012

Yea I think it is kind of a British thing, I've always wondered though... Is it just an Anglican thing, or are Catholc priests in England called vicars too? 0:)


puppylove Posted: Jan 16th 2012

provably vicar is priest in the British language


Gromits little bro Posted: Jan 16th 2012

It's just church of England/wales/Scotland, I think.


Gromits little bro Posted: Jan 16th 2012

Which are Anglican.


wallace05man Posted: Jan 16th 2012

oops sorry, i didn't know you were not british


wallace05man Posted: Jan 16th 2012

i'm not catholic either, i know what a vicar is because my uncle is a vicar:D


iantimothy Posted: Jan 16th 2012

That's what I thought. I know some higher up Catholic officials are called vicars, like the Pope is called the Vicar of Christ on Earth. But just ordinary priests aren't called vicars

The word "vicar" comes from the same root word as "vicarious". A vicar oversees a congregation as a respresentative of the Bishop. The Pope is called the "vicar of Christ" because Catholics believe he is Christ's representative on earth. In the Episcopal Church - the branch of the Anglican Church in the USA - a the priest in charge of a congregation that is not completely financially self supporting is called a vicar. I'm not sure if that is also the case in the UK - that the name vicar is connected to the church's financial status.


Gromits little bro Posted: Jan 19th 2012

I really don't know, the churches here are quite overly religious when there's no need... And they are called vicars, but I don't know why, but only in the Anglican church. I don't know much about Catholicism, I mainly know about born again Christianity...


puppylove Posted: Jan 20th 2012

thank you fish :) you shure know alot ;)
