The house is now a country style retreat run by dynamic couple Gary Grootelaar and Dietska Van Kessel – it is New Zealand’s first Qualmark accredited 5* boutique lodge. Louise from Tourism New Zealand and I only stayed one night at The Manse during our Hawke’s Bay tour.
A manse (/ˈmæns/) is a clergy house occupied or formerly occupied by a minister, usually used in connection with Presbyterian, Methodist, Baptist, and other Christian traditions.
Ministerial houses often serve as administrative offices for the local church as well as residences. They are usually located next to, or at least close to, the church their resident serves.
A mansion is a large residential building.
Early origins of the Mance family
The Mance surname was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), where the first record of the family was the singular Minna here in the Assize Rolls by 1202. Over a hundred years later, Gostelynus Mynne was found in the Subsidy Rolls of Suffolk in 1327.
MANCE is not a valid Scrabble word.
Roman Catholic Church
In Catholic canon law, a vicar is the representative of each ecclesiastical entity. The Romans had used the term to designate officials subordinate to the Praetorian prefects.
A pointed cone shape on a building is called a spire, especially when it rises from the roof of a church. That part of a church roof that rises above a city skyline or the rolling hills of a village and points sharply up into the sky is its steeple. Many church towers have a cross at the top.
Salary and career prospects for priests
The top 10% earn more than $80,920 per year and the bottom 10% earn $30,450 or less per year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many churches value being frugal and humble, so pay for priests can be lower than for other professions.
