Twenty-fourth Sunday after Pentecost: All Hallows Eve

October 29, 2016

October 31, the night before All Saints’ Day, is All Hallows’ Eve, or as it is more commonly known, Halloween. Although All Saints’ Day is one of the major holy days on the church’s liturgical calendar, All Hallows’ Eve is not as widely celebrated in the church as it is in secular culture. However, for Episcopalians seeking a Halloween liturgy, “The Book of Occasional Services” (Church Pension Fund, 2004) does offer a service for All Hallows’ Eve  (pp. 108-110).
