Talking about the same in detail, his school friend Shane Dempler said (as per contactmusic.com), “We found few bottles of liquor and kept it near the woods. The priests did not find it until few other boys got to know about our plan. They went inside the woods and got drunk. They were caught red-handed and forced to confess,”
Shane Dempler continued by saying “The school wrote a letter to our parents saying that they liked us, but didn’t want us to return. So we were not kicked out, just preferred not to go.” Stating that Tom Cruise was really interested in the priesthood, Shane also mentioned that Tom Cruise had realised that it was too early for him to choose his career. He concluded his message by saying, “We used to attend Mass, spend time in the chapel and enjoy hearing stories from the priests. We thought the priests had a great lifestyle and we were really interested in priesthood.”
