Unfortunately, the modern world concentrates more on the Halloween part of this rather than the Eve of All Hallows.

There is a wonderful service for the Vigil of All Hallow’s in the Episcopal Book of Occasional Services.

It is intended for use in the context of Vespers; after the customary opening verses and prayers a sequence of Scripture, Psalm, Silence, and Prayer is followed:

The Witch of Endor

LESSON 1 Samuel 28:3-19
PSALM 130
SILENCE
PRAYER

The Vision of Eliphaz the Tishbite

LESSON Job 4:12-21
PSALM 108:1-6
SILENCE
PRAYER

The Valley of Dry Bones

LESSON Ezekiel 37:1-14
PSALM 143:1-11
SILENCE
PRAYER

The War in Heaven

LESSON Revelation 12:7-12
PSALM 103:17-22
SILENCE
PRAYER

The service then concludes with the Te Deum and Intercessions.
