Nine monks in various stages of formation at one monastery. Pretty impressive. And they go to some pretty impressive schools.

The Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta.

The one with the maniple looking thing is the late Fra' Fredrik Crichton-Stuart, Grand Prior of England of the Knights of Malta. He was a professed Knight of Justice. The others except for the priest are non-professed Knights and Dames. Knights and Dames, depending on their class of knighthood, make either a Promise of Obedience or make no promises but live according to the principles of the Church and Order.

It looks like they only wear their habits and uniforms in choir of for official events, opting to go around in civvies.

I can't find very many pictures on their website, but here are the Benedictine monks at Mount Angel Abbey (in St. Benedict, OR):

let the novice at once intone this verse: "Receive me, O Lord,
according to Your word, and I shall live: and let me not be confounded
in my hope" (Ps. 118[119]:116). Let the whole community answer this
verse three times and add the "Glory be to the Father." Then let the
novice prostrate himself at each one's feet, that they may pray for
him. And from that day forward let him be counted as one of the
Community.

My goodness -- Brother Cuthbert gives me hope that if I join the religious life I can wear a shemagh after all!

I meant to come back and correct this sometime, and I guess that time is now. The monk on the left could very well be from Mount Angel, I'm not sure. The last time I was there I saw someone dressed the same way, so maybe it's their novice habit or something?  :idontknow:

You may have been right the first time, the Monk on the left looks like a Cistercian. I've never seen an OSB habit, novice or otherwise resemble the Cistercian habit.

Can't be sure, but my guess is he is from the OCSO (Trappist/Cistercian) abbey of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Lafayette, Oregon, which isn't far from Mt. Angel.  (Their website won't let me copy pictures, but lots of pictures on it!)

And in case you are hungry.... the make cakes and mail them out....

Lots of communities have men do their priestly formation at Mount Angel, as well as a number of dioceses.  The Western Province of Discalced Carmelites among them.... standing in front of the Mt. Angel Seminary...
