It has been established that Dorcas's family made enamelled crucifixes.
Likewise, that the pelerines are a band of Red Cross women (battlefield
healers), and they use a cross form on their letters (the "narthex sigil of
the order").

(Greg Feeley used these points to extrapolate that the pelerines bought
their crucifixes from the family of Dorcas whenever they were in Nessus;
this family connection/association then facilitates the meeting between
Catherine and Ouen.)

So yes: a form of Christianity played a part in Urth's past, in the
teaching and church of the Conciliator (at the very least); and was so long
ago that it has been all but forgotten.
