Are they Roman Catholics? Any relations to descendants of QV?

There are no descendants of Victoria who are Arenbergs. Princess Helena Victoria's illegitimate granddaughter, Valerie Marie, was married to Jean's kinsman.

Yes, Roman Catholic. Sophie is the youngest child of Crown Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria and Princess Antonia of Luxembourg. Sophie's brother-in-law, the Duke of Croy, died earlier this year (married to her sister, Gabriele)
