So I was wondering how one would address an Orthodox priest in Japanese.  I guessed "父 [personal name]," but a Japanese student told me it is their name (not sure whether personal or family) and then ぼくてい (or something that sounds similar).  Can anyone tell me what the correct term is?

I'm still uncertain. Chi-chi seems unlikely. Oto-san may be appropriate. Doesn't Oto simply mean "man" in Japanese by itself?

I was going to post earlier, I just wasn't sure. Still ain't. I looked on the Orthodox Church Japan website to see if they have anything but I couldn't find anything.
