The 2013 Ministers Council Retreat featured the Rev. Patricia P. Hernandez National Director for Transition Ministries and American Baptist Women in Ministry, who led reflections on Following the Call Without Losing the Soul: Discerning the Business from the Busyness of Ministry January 14 - 15, 2013 at the San Damiano Retreat Center

Rev. Hernandez looked at spiritual formation for clergy and explored different models of ministry that call for a less driven, healthier pace. Other retreat activities included times of worship, opportunities for spiritual direction, small groups to connect with ministry colleagues, all-group fellowship activities, good food and fun, along with personal free time to relax and read, sit and walk, be still and enjoy the beautiful grounds of San Damiano Retreat.
