I would say the most devout Catholic cities are in Poland and The Philipines.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned NEW ORLEANS.

This city has very strong catholic roots, influences, and traditions. Their whole Mardi Gras celebration comes from Catholic traditions of partying it up before Lent.

Not only that, New Orleans is probably the most Catholic city in the South, apart from Miami.

The traditional Northeast has, by far, the highest Catholic population in the country (as a %). Boston, New York City, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh are all heavily Catholic.

Makes sense because of the immigration patterns. Many of the immigrants in this region came from Poland, Italy, Ireland, Quebec, Croatia, Ukraine, Portugal, Cape Verde, and Germany. These nations have sizeable to predominant Catholic populations.
Immigration of French-Canadians to Maine also contributes to the Catholic population in many of inland Maine's towns such as Lewiston. This is even more so in the Madawaska region near the border with Quebec.

Also, the French-Canadian and Portuguese populations in New Bedford and Fall River. New Bedford has the blessing of the fishing fleet.
