The Friar has no ties to any monastery or specific church. He was ready to serve anyone at anytime because that was how he survived......... not to mention he happily accepted the bribes that lined his pockets.

The Parson, one the other hand, was a devout servant of God. He was a pastor in the local church, lives in poverty, and practices what he preaches. He is the complete opposite of the Friar in every way.
