John for sure was catholic because on the anthology documentary after the uproar of the 'bigger than Jesus' controversy, which i think he should never said that, but the band was getting so famous that it was a fact, it was just his opinion, he says:
''That image of Anti-Christ is incorrect. I'm a catholic religious person just like you.''
He was giving his opinion, that's it. And he regrets when they go to the USA for what became their last tour, August 1966, where the controversy was, and expanded through all America and all world, although on Liverpool appeared this on March 1966 and nothing happened.
He was an independent person, unique, with his own opinions, he didn't get someother opinions, it was himself, saying what he believed is truth. It's my favorite Beatle. I think that when he entered with God up there, i think he was ok, i mean, he regret of that commentary controversial, i think he's singing for God and all up there.
We miss you John.

That was a small-'c' "catholic" in that quote up there; John wasn't referring to Roman Catholicism. He was raised as a member of the Church of England, not that it ultimately made any difference.

I, too, am a Christian, but not so bothered by it. And I'm not surprised he said it either. That is just how John is…
Maybe this conversation happened.
John arriving to Heaven being welcomed by a very tall Jesus.
Jesus (looking down) : "So, you were the one who said you and your mates were bigger than I?"
John (looking up) "I said bigger, not taller"
Hah! Very funny. I'm not a Christian or very religious at all (I was raised Catholic though, just like ol' Paulie) and religion didn't play an enormous part in my life, as much as my parents tried to force it on us. I can see how it could be considered offensive, but, I find it rings quite true.
Ha! Funny! Your parents raised you Catholic and try to force it on you too!
