Profound apologies for neglecting to mention the religion of the Wilsons I am researching, which was  Christian. 
They were Church of Ireland/Anglican in denomination, although there were some mixed marriages with Presbyterians. :)  No idea where earlier generations might have worshipped.

Hi I meant Presbyterian. My Wilsons .....gr. Grandpa William and gr. Grandma Ann Jane Davidson married at a meeting house in Bailieborough. He went to Knockbride church. I visited the church in Knockbride last year. What a thrill! There is a very big squared off gravesite that are WilsonsĒ there is no marker. I hope one day to have a little marker put there...labelled Wilson family.  I also visited the Wilson house in Drumbar. The original house was still there....cement blocks and thatched roof....partly falling in. What a wonderful 3 days I had there....I met family through the Davidsonís....and also through the Mulligans. There were three groups of Wilsons...I donít have my info with me...one was the ďrockĒ Wilsons...will have to look when home for other two. Melody

My Wilsonís, Thomas Wilson and Elizabeth Thompson, were not Catholic. I have no records of Thomas but Elizabeth and their children are listed as Wesleyan Methodists once they came to Quebec.

My Wilsonís were Methodists, and lived in Killeshandra, Cavan there is quite a lot of information on my Wilson family about my family very early on in this post under my name.
I wonder if there is a connection, although it is a very common name. :)
