Great and small come together for the chance to be blessed

A CONGREGATION filled with all creatures great and small has come together at Wacol for the chance to be blessed.

It was a spiritual atmosphere at the RSPCA Queensland's Animal Care Campus as the site hosted its Blessing of the Animals ceremony.

The event takes place each year in line with RSPCA Awareness Week, which promotes animal welfare and the freedoms for animals.

The ceremony was conducted at the weekend by chaplain Cameron Auld from the Arthur Gorrie Remand Centre.

He blessed animals of all shapes and sizes in the adoption centre, the livestock paddock and the wildlife ward.

RSPCA Queensland's senior veterinarian Dr Anne Chester said it was a touching and inspirational event.

"The animals all got individual attention and I think they were truly aware something very important was happening," Dr Chester said.
