Abstract: Fi zmien il-Kappillan tal-Parrocca ta’ Birkirkara, Dun Filippu Borg, twaqqfet l-ewwel Kolleggjata f’Malta f’din il-lokalita. Dan is-sacerdot kien gej minn familja ghanja. Minn gidu kien diga ta kontribut fil-bini tal-knisja ta’ Santa Marija f’Birkirkara. Borg kellu lawrja fil-ligi civili u f’dik ekklezjastika u ghal snin twal kien ezaminatur tal-kleru u serva bhala Vigarju Generali. Inhatar ukoll Protonotarju Appostoliku mis-Santa Sede. Kien ukoll Vigarju Generali tad-Djocesi Maltija. Minkejja li Wignacourt kien ipproponielu biex isir Dekan tal-Kapitlu tal-Katidral, hu rrinunzja ghal din il-hatra u baqa’ raghaj spiritwali ta’ din il-parrocca. Dun Filippu talab lill-Papa biex il-parrocca ta’ Birkirkara titwaqqaf Kolleggjata u l-Papa Urbanu VIII laqa’ t-talba tieghu. Il-hbiberija bejn Maffeo Barberini (Papa Urbanu VIII) u Filippu Borg setghet tghin f’dan ir-rigward. B’din il-Bolla twaqqfet Kolleggjata bi Prepostu, li kellu jkun il-mexxej tal-Kapitlu u tnax-il kanonku. Il-Prepostu u l-kanonci nghataw privilegg li setghu jilbsu r-rukkett u l-kapamanja ghal kuljum. Id-dmir tal-kanonci kien li jattendu flimkien ghall-ufficcju divin, ghall-quddiesa konventwali u funzjonijiet ohra filwaqt li jamministraw il-beni tal-Kolleggjata. Is-Socjeta Dun Filippu Borgia twaqqfet f’Birkirkara fl-1936 biex tiehu hsieb il-gid tal-Karkarizi kollha u fl-1939 giet rikonoxxuta mis-Segnatura Appostolica.
