Troubling Emotions

Workshop Guides People through Emotions with Prayer


Hands reaching up to a radiating sky with sunset.Sinsinawa Mound Center is sponsoring Praying Our Troubling Emotions virtually from 7-8 p.m. CDT Wednesday, Sept. 15. Pat Pintens will explore with participants how emotions, both “positive” and “negative,” are part and parcel of being human. Yet people often find themselves struggling with or against certain negative emotions, for example: anger, jealousy, sadness, etc. Nonetheless, these negative emotions carry important messages. Learning how to pray negative emotions opens one to the messages and the gifts they offer. Pintens, a presenter at Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center in Arbor Vitae, WI, will lead this workshop. She is a native of northern Wisconsin and has been involved in parish ministry as catechist, director of religious education, campus minister, parish director and choir member. Pintens holds a bachelor’s in home economics education and two master’s in Christian spirituality and theology.

The fee is $15 per person, and the registration deadline is Sept. 14 at 4 p.m. Please register by contacting Arrangements at 608-748-4411 or visiting our website at
