If someone tell you "I was raised in a Catholic family" does this mean they are no longer Catholic/religious despite their parents being Catholic?

I feel like the word 'was' in this sentence is maybe the big clue?

Not enough information to say either way. It just means what it says and you cant read too much in with any certainty.

To me, the word 'was' in this sentence means the person is no longer being raised - i.e. they are an adult.

Not specifically. They meant raised as in the past. It’d be kinda inappropriate if they said “I’m raised in Catholic family”. It doesn’t particularly mean they are no longer Catholic/Religious

It can also imply that she/he is the way she/he is because of that background

Basically means that either they are catholic, still live by catholic principles or tendencies, or that they pushed away from it but still grew up with it at one point and it’s just to give an example as to what their family and home life was like.
More than likely, still is catholic and grew up learning by it.
