* Patrick [=McGoohan=] was a devout Catholic for all of his life. He was so devout that it often clashed with the things that an actor must do as part of his job. Most notably, [=McGoohan=] adamantly refused to do love scenes or even so much as kiss another woman on screen. He explained this as being unfaithful to his wife (adultery). This was one of the major reasons he turned down [[JamesBond one of the most iconic roles ever]], and why [[DangerMan his own secret agent character]] was so chaste. This became less of a problem in TheSeventies after he aged out of leading man roles.

* Nico Minoru and Victor Mancha of the ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'' are both stated to be Catholic. The Minoru family's Catholic roots go back at least as far as 1907, when Nico's ancestor Witchbreaker was part of an implicitly all-Catholic gang called the Upward Path.

* [[ComicBook/CaptainAmerica Steven Rogers of Captain America fame]] was the son of two Irish Catholic immigrant parents. Whenever he is characterised as more humble people sometimes point to this as part of the reason.

* There's a joke about an atheist who visits UsefulNotes/NorthernIreland during UsefulNotes/TheTroubles. The locals respond "yes, but is it the Catholic god or the Protestant god that you don't believe in?"

* In ''Literature/AYellowRaftInBlueWater'', the Native Americans are raised as Catholics through a missions school on the reservation in Montana. Ida's sister Pauline goes full-bore Catholic while Ida lapses. Christine becomes a dedicated Catholic up until her teen years when TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt was supposed to happen on New Year's Eve 1960 and it didn't, though during her lapsed years she still continues to pray to the Virgin Mary in dire circumstances. Her brother Lee drifts toward her people's Native American beliefs up until he joins the Army. Rayona is usually pushed toward Catholicism both in the Seattle area and on the reservation, but doesn't really commit herself to the faith at any point.

For whatever reason -- perhaps because ChristianityIsCatholic -- there seems to be no common Protestant equivalent to this trope, even though people paying lip-service to their family or culture's religion is as old as religion itself. One possible explanation for this is that Catholicism, much more than Protestantism, is considered by some to be a part of one's ethnic and cultural identity in addition to being a religion, especially for those whose national heritage is tied to the Church (such as people of Irish, Italian, Polish, or Hispanic descent); InformedJudaism pretty much works this way, as well. Another possibility is that compared to Protestantism, the Catholic Church places a somewhat stronger emphasis on iconography and ritual; this can then become a rich source of material for former Catholic authors who may [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail no longer remember the subtler aspects of Catholicism or who also may require an easy cue for their non-Catholic audiences to recognize]]. The third probable answer is the fact that it used to be rather difficult to formally abandon membership in the Catholic Church, and since 2010 it's impossible, which means that the Church still considers practically all lapsed Catholics as members of its flock whether they like it or not. (That baptism leaves quite the indelible mark on the soul...)

* "Series/TheATeam" has Templeton Peck, who was raised in Catholic orphanages. Most certainly falls into either the lapsed or recovering groups, as he had no qualms with impersonating a priest if the con asks it of him.

* Soccer star [[OnlyKnownByTheirNickname Mary Abigail "Abby" Wambach]], so named because her mother had prayed to the Virgin Mary for a girl after giving birth to three boys in a row. However, Abby's mom decided that Mary Abigail sounded better than Abigail Mary.
