Hmm....Can’t say I know what an A&P Catholic is. I know C&E Catholics (Christmas & Easter)....

The priest at my church refers to these as HMDs, e.g., “hatch, match and dispatch” folk. Occasionally, they even make the Easter service.

According to the Urban Dictionary:
“”Catholics (or any form of Christianity, basically) who only goes to Church on days when they give out free stuff; namely Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday.

“Bob: Do you ever go to Church?
Steve: Only on Ash Wednesday and Palm Sunday, when they give out free stuff.
Bob: Dude, you are such an A and P Catholic!””

I am not sure that I believe this. Ashes and palm fronds don’t have much value.

The folks who show up for "giveaways" - Ashes & Palms.

I know C&E Catholics (Christmas & Easter)....

I had forgotten that expression. In this instance, I intended it to mean (First) Communion & Weddings. They also appear at Confirmations ; - )
