    In everday language, 'priest' tends to be used for Catholic clergy and is sometimes used for religious figure of old religions (Ancient Egyptian priests). 'Vicar' is often used for the Church of England and I hear 'minister' used for other Protestant churches like Baptists and Methodists.

    Here are some links to technical defintions:

    Rector: CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Rector
    Vicar: CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Vicar
    Minister: CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Minister
    Priest: CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Priest
