That's relative to what you're discussing. A pilgrim is someone who travels for a religious reason. If you mean the Pilgrims, or the people who landed at Plymouth Rock, then they were. Now if you meant simply a pilgrim, then a pilgrim could be any faith.

The Pilgrims were Puritans, who were very different from the Church of England, and so they were as much subject to persecution as the Catholics.
