This article focuses on the question how the religious ideological identity can be sensibly combined with cultural diversity at Catholic schools. The previous answers to this question in Catholic teaching in the Netherlands, being isolation and adjustment, appear to be inadequate, especially within our multicultural context and with the growing presence of immigrant pupils. Even the more recent approaches of this problem, such as assimilation, integration and pluralism are not satisfactory. In the second part of this article we therefore look for the direction in which a more justified solution is to be found. Based on a number of viewpoints, borrowed from J.R. Searle, a participation-oriented approach seems to offer most perspectives in the course of which the promotion of the intercultural and interreligious communication is developed as an important condition.
