The Altar at Mission San Carlos Borromeo
"Soon after founding San Carlos Borromeo, Father Serra moved the mission south to the Carmel River. This spot was closer to the Rumsien village of Ashista.
Father Serra wrote guidelines explaining what methods the missionaries should use to convince Native Americans to join the missions. Through letters, he recruited Franciscans from Spain."
