A rumor on Twitter says Mister Rogers, a Presbyterian minister, took last rites from a monk.

This article by Mike Aquilina offers details about Mister Rogers' extensive ties to Catholicism, but doesn't say he converted on his death bed.

It reminds me of Santayana in his last days. He told a friend, "If the nurse nuns say I made a profession of faith right before I died, don't believe them." (not an exact quote)
