Gambit is overtly as a Catholic, although he is not always a Catholic who is orthodox in his practice.

There is much overtly Catholic lore in Gambit stories. One excellent example of this is the second Gambit limited series, in which Gambit steals the Cross of Redemption from Miami mobsters and returns it to the Vatican.
