There is plenty of parking both behind and on the side of the mission. Once inside is a foyer with warm blue walls, are tables on the right side that have papers, registration information, booklets, sign-ups and more. From the foyer into the next set of doors, you can go either right into the reception area or left to the mission. I first walked around the reception area to look around and then turned to take photos of the mission. There are two sections of pews with one main aisle and two side aisles. Rows of chairs are available behind the pews for any overflow of parishioners. The pews have crosses on each end that faces the main aisle.

The altar is located in an alcove that is just below a series of small rectangular openings. Harvest arrangements were just in front of the altar table that was equipped with the Gospel, a notebook, two white candles and a white cloth. A podium is to the right of the table and the preparation table was directly behind. Seating for Father Richard Hunt and the altar servers is on the left and just behind the altar table. Further left of the chairs is the Paschal candle on a tall wooden pillar. Immediately behind the table is an extremely large white cross that covers the wall and holds a lovely carved crucifix with Jesus. The white cross seems to be bringing the crucifix closer to the parishioners and highlights the significance and beauty. A music area is to the right of the altar area and the tabernacle along with the Sanctuary light is to the left of the altar area. There is an abundance of light that comes into the altar and directs your attention forward at Saint Florence Mission.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy; O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. – St. Francis of Assisi
