Manchester City origin: my name, Saint Mark church + John Lennon

MANCHESTER - Some history (and religion) again. It was destiny I would have supported Man City :). St. Mark's church was the previous (first) name of the club. And I said on 10-10-10 I would have married, so here's a church, lol!
It is widely accepted that Manchester City F.C. was founded as St. Mark's (West Gorton) in 1880 by Anna Connell and two churchwardens of St. Mark's Church (sharp as the point of a star), in Gorton, a district in east Manchester. Also in Milan there's a church called Saint Mark (year 1245, and Mozart stayed there for 3 months where he played the organ as my father), and of course also in Venice (Venezia), the saint of the city with the winged lion, symbol of the Evangelist Saint Marco, that is also England symbol (and Leo is my ascendant too :). In fact, the magazine of the church in Manchester is called "Winged lion" and inside the church there are several winged lions. The symbol comes from St. Mark's description of John the Baptist's voice "crying out in the wilderness" upon hearing the Word of God (Mark 1:3). His voice is said to have sounded like that of a roaring lion. This lion symbolism also appears in a vision of the Prophet Ezekiel where four winged creatures represent the four evangelists (Ezekiel 1:10). Matthew is depicted as a human, Mark as a lion, Luke as a bull, and John as an eagle. John Lennon :), today's his 70. birthday and I sent the wishes to Yoko Ono, telling about the new park in Milan dedicated to him for the 30th anniversary in December.
The church (foundation stone June 1844, completed and consecrated in 1846): its history is bound up with the emergence of Worsley as a cradle of the Industrial Revolution. The patron, Lord Francis Egerton, 1st Earl of Ellesmere, described the place as "A God-forgotten place, its inhabitants much addicted to drink and rude sports, their morals deplorably low" (Oasis were already there? lol).
The church has an ornate Italian marble. The Reredos is a beautiful piece of Italian craftsmanship of alabaster inlaid with coloured marbles and mosaics in intricate geometric patterns. There are 9 panels: angels bearing scrolls and censers, a virgin bearing a lily, a mother and child. The fine central panel depicts Christ with right hand raised in blessing, seated above sun, moon and rainbow. The clergy stalls, which are probably by the architect Sir George Gilbert Scott (buried in Westminster Abbey in London, an honour given to no other architect before or since), carry statues of the four Doctors of the Church - Jerome, Gregory, Augustine and Ambrose, who is the patron saint of Milan.
the football club in 1884
Prior to the football club, St. Mark's played cricket from 1875 and the side evolved out of that cricket team – the key organiser was Church Warden William Beastow.
