Risen with Christ: A Retreat for the Great Fifty Days of Easter
Led By: Masud Ibn Syedullah TSSF
April 13- April 15, 2018
This retreat, specifically offered during Eastertide, draws upon the rich iconography of the Eastern Church to identify ways the reality of Resurrection was made know to our spiritual ancestors – and is available to us now.
For nearly forty years, Fr. Syedullah has been inspired by the spirituality of the Orthodox Church, and coupled with Franciscan Anglican spirituality offers both broad and deep insights to the biblical narratives related to the resurrection and the artistic representations of them in the icons of the Eastern Church.

Masud Ibn Syedullah TSSF, an Episcopal priest of the Diocese of New York, is Founder and Director of Roots & Branches: Programs for Spiritual Growth (rootsandbranchesprograms.org), a ministry resource for individuals and communities of faith, providing conferences, retreats, pilgrimages, and other events to support spiritual formation.
