There were a number of brothers (and priests? couldn't tell, I just heard one say that he wasn't a priest and that one was a novice) from the Holy Transfiguration Skete of the Society of St. John at the Latin mass at St. Agnes today. They had a couple of days layover in NYC on the way to somewhere else, though I didn't catch where. They looked a bit like Capuchin Franciscans of the Renewal [CFR] (beards, hoods, no scapulars) and a bit like Benedictines (black habits, belts), which was settled after Mass when I found out they were Ukranian Rite Monks.

Speaking of hoods, that was one thing that I could not figure out at Clear Creek... the rules for which monks wore their hoods during the liturgy and why.
