Titular See
A TITULAR SEE in various churches is an episcopal see of a former diocese that no longer functions, sometimes called a "dead diocese". The ordinary or hierarch of such a see may be styled a "titular metropolitan" (highest rank), "titular archbishop" (intermediary rank) or "titular bishop " (lowest rank), which normally goes by the status conferred on the titular see. The term is used to signify a diocese that no longer functionally exists, often because the diocese once flourished but the territory was conquered for Islam
Islam
or no longer functions because of a schism . The Greek–Turkish population exchange of 1923 also contributed to titular bishoprics. The see of Maximianoupolis was destroyed along with the town that shared its name by the Bulgarians under Emperor Kaloyan in 1207; the town and the see were under the control of the Latin Empire

Monsignor
MONSIGNOR /mɒnˈsiːnjə/ is an honorific form of address for those members of the clergy of the Catholic Church including bishops, honorary prelates and canons. In some cases, these ecclesiastical honorific titles derive from the pope, but in other cases it is simply a customary or honorary style belonging to a prelate or honorary prelate. These are granted to individuals who have rendered valuable service to the Church, or who provide some special function in Church governance, or who are members of bodies such as certain chapters . The title is never bestowed on those classified as religious in Catholicism. Although in some languages the word is used as a form of address for bishops, which is indeed its primary use in those languages, this is not customary in English. _Monsignor_ is the apocopic form of the Italian _monsignore_, from the French _mon seigneur_, meaning "my lord". It is abbreviated MGR, MSGR, or MONS

Congregation For The Evangelization Of Peoples
The CONGREGATION FOR THE EVANGELIZATION OF PEOPLES ( Latin : _Congregatio pro Gentium Evangelizatione_) in Rome is the congregation of the Roman Curia responsible for missionary work and related activities. It is perhaps better known by its former title, the SACRED CONGREGATION FOR THE PROPAGATION OF THE FAITH (_Sacra Congregatio de Propaganda Fide_). It was founded by Pope Gregory XV in 1622 to arrange missionary work on behalf of the various religious institutions, and in 1627 Pope Urban VIII established within it a training college for missionaries. When Pope Paul VI reorganized and adjusted the tasks of the Roman Curia with the publication of _Regimini Ecclesiae Universae_ on August 15, 1967, the name of the congregation was changed to the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples

Freemasonry
FREEMASONRY or MASONRY consists of fraternal organisations that trace their origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons , which from the end of the fourteenth century regulated the qualifications of stonemasons and their interaction with authorities and clients. The degrees of freemasonry retain the three grades of medieval craft guilds , those of Apprentice , Journeyman or fellow (now called Fellowcraft), and Master Mason . These are the degrees offered by Craft (or Blue Lodge) Freemasonry. Members of these organisations are known as FREEMASONS or MASONS. There are additional degrees, which vary with locality and jurisdiction, and are usually administered by different bodies than the craft degrees. The basic, local organisational unit of Freemasonry is the Lodge . The Lodges are usually supervised and governed at the regional level (usually coterminous with either a state, province, or national border) by a Grand Lodge or Grand Orient
