Do they have a rep. in the UN?

Yes, they have permanent observer status, no vote, but can debate and otherwise participate. That is way above the status of organizations such as the Red Cross and the World Council of Churches. Catholocism is the only religion to hold such a status in the UN.

To be precise, it is not the religion of Catholicism that has permanent observer status. It is the independent nation of the Vatican that has observer status.
