Presbyters are often referred to as ''Father'' (Fr.), though that is not an official title. Rather, it is a term of affection used by Christians for their [[ordination|ordained]] elders. In this context, a priest's first name is generally used after the word ''Father''.
Priests are often styled as ''Reverend'' (Rev.) and therefore referred to as ''Reverend Father'' (Rev. Fr.). Higher in bestowed honor and responsibility, [[Archpriest]]s and [[Protopresbyter]]s are styled as ''Very Reverend'' (V. Rev.), while [[Archimandrite]]s are styled as ''Right Reverend'' (Rt. Rev.).
[[Monastic]]s who are ordained to the priesthood are known as ''priest-monks'' or ''hieromonks''.
