Fr. Reyes highlights teachers’ hard work amid pandemic

Teachers take a different level of hard work in the time of Covid-19 pandemic when schools shift to online distance learning, St. Edward School’s (SES) chaplain, Fr. Mark Anthony Reyes, underscored in his homily October 13.

“We (teachers) are called to work hard, to double the hard work,” Father Reyes said during the Holy Eucharist in celebration of the Feast of St. Edward the Confessor.

The chaplain also shared his own struggles as a teacher who handles four classes four days a week.

He also revisited the other core values of SES such as servanthood (stewardship), integrity, and faith.

As a servant leader, he reminded the teachers to “work hard because you are called to serve.”

“Saint Edward’s kingship is patterned according to Christ which is to serve and not to be served,” Fr. Reyes said.

The holy eucharist is followed by the convocation dedicated for teachers with the theme, “Teachers: Leading in crisis reimagining the future.”
