From St. Procopius Abbey outside Chicago: 

"On July 4, the Solemnity of St. Procopius, we were very happy to accept Br. Paul Ritt into novitiate."

From St. Joseph's Abbey in Louisiana: 

Please join the Saint Joseph community in congratulating Marquis Simon, who took temporary vows Monday evening during Vespers in the Abbey Church, committing himself to three years as a Benedictine monk at Saint Joseph Abbey. He was given the name Austin and will now be known as Brother Austin Simon.

From St. Martin's Abbey in Washington State (they staff a college): 

Brother-postulant Brandon Rappuhn is now Brother-novice Damien Joseph Rappuhn! He presented himself for admission in a brief ceremony during evening prayer on July 10 and received the name of Damien after St. Damien of Molokai, a priest who ministered to those afflicted with leprosy in Hawaii in the nineteenth century. There were a few friends in attendance, but this ceremony is usually not publicized as are simple vows, taken after the one-year novitiate, or solemn vows, taken after all stages of formation are complete, usually after about four and a half years in monastic life. The novitiate is a one-year period of focus on monastic life, in work, study, and prayer, with limited interaction outside the monastery. Please pray for his ongoing discernment and formation and perseverance!

This clip is of a postulant's 2016 entrance into the Carmel of St. Teresa of Avila (I believe).  The sight of the nuns with their faces covered in a black veil is quite foreboding.  It is an interesting ceremony, though.

From St. Anselm's Abbey in New Hampshire:

At noon Mr. Ryan Sarasin, Saint Anselm College Class of 2017, was received into the novitiate and was clothed in the monastic habit. Abbot Mark gave him his religious name, Brother Aloysius. Brother Aloysius' patron is Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, patron saint of youth and students. Father Peter Guerin, O.S.B. will serve as his Novice Master. Please pray for Brother Aloysius as he begins this year of formation. Please continue to pray that our community will be blessed with new and holy vocations.

The 1990 Carmels in Spain keeps the tradition; not sure if all 1990 Carmels in the USA does the same.  I know one US Carmel who does; their Prioress told me they pull the veil down to their nose during communion.
