Parish village

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Pfarrdorf is, according to the Bavarian library defined by the fact that the location of the seat of a Parish is or an in Parish located. Whether this parish still has its own priest is irrelevant. A parish village, on the other hand, has a church that does not have its own parish, but is only a branch church of another parish.

A parish village is usually a larger village with its own parish church or parish.

The settlement geography defines the church village as the lowest central settlement with a religious supply function. Colloquially, the term is also used for a locality in which a pastor from abroad regularly holds church services .
