Our reporter, Katie Berger, took a lot of photos during the pilgrimage and we've made either a CD or DVD of those photos available for purchase from The Criterion.
Both cost $5, and I would recommend that anyone who has a computer with a DVD drive purchase the DVD, which has enough memory to store all of the photos. We've made the CD version available only for those people who cannot read DVDs on their computer.
Here's what you get with either:
Final note for those who aren't tech-savvy: the photo DVD is NOT intended to be played on the DVD player connected to your television, nor can the CD be played in a car or other stereo system. Both discs are far computer use.

I was a youth minister in the archdiocese for three years, graduated from St. Meinrad School of Theology last year and now reside in Pueblo, Colorado. I'm going to be sending back photos and updates "live" from our archdiocesan pilgrimage to Australia.
I've done the blog for three Archdiocesan Hurricane Relief trips to Biloxi, Miss. and New Orleans. This is my second trip to World Youth Day, having attended World Youth Day 2005 in Cologne, Germany.
I currently serve the Archdiocese of Indianapolis as its website manager, and also serve as the online editor of The Criterion.
I'll be doing most of the posting to this blog during the run-up to World Youth Day, and during the weeklong event I will be helping Katie post all the pictures and updates that she'll be sending back to the states.
If you have an emergency and need to reach our pilgrims while they are in Australia, call 0447295474.
