The priest is referred to as "pater," though, in the "Confiteor" of the 1570 Missale Romanum, and the same was true of earlier missals going back at least to the fourteenth century.

Actually as early as 1100 AD according to my research, but the average man in the street did not call a priest Father until much, much later. Sir John, Don Juan (or Giovanni), Dom Joao or Abbe Jean would have been much more common.
