The article examines the aims of education as they relate to the construction of religious-narrative identities of children. The concept of religion is taken from Claire Disbrey’s institutional theory of religion, which is examined in association with Paul Ricoeur’s concept of narrative identity. The construction of the religious-narrative identity is characterized by an interaction between individual and culture. On the basis of this conceptual framework the authors formulate six aims for the construction of religious-narrative identity in children. The teachers reported five of these six aims in an empirical study of teachers in Catholic primary schools in the Netherlands. The article concludes with a reflection on the results of the study.
