MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Milwaukee Archbishop Jerome Listecki on Sunday, June 16th celebrated Mass at Polish Fest.

Listecki is Polish himself, and says festivals like Polish Fest are a great reminder of our heritage.

Listecki says he has done all of the Milwaukee festivals at one time or another -- but Polish Fest is the only festival he is doing this year.

Listecki heads to Brazil next month to join Pope Francis for "World Youth Day."

"I love doing these things!  I love it.  It's a great opportunity. I love getting a chance to meet people," Archbishop Listecki said.

Listecki estimates the Mass drew about 2,000 to 3,000 people.
