Slovakia Church Records circa 1905
I am looking for a birth record or baptism record for Joseph Cabon born 1905.
I am trying to determine if it is located in collection
"Cirkevná matrika, 1804-1946 Author: Rímsko-katolícka cirkev. Farský úrad Sliače (Ružomberok); Štátny oblastný archív v Bytče".
The family has oral history information that he was born in the village of Sliače, Slovakia (now known as Liptovské Sliače since 2001 according to Wikipedia), which was part of Austro-Hungarian Empire in 1905. I plan on visiting an Affiliate Library or a Family History Library in near future. The local Roman Catholic Church is believed to be "Kostol sv. Šimona a Júdu" known as "Parish Church of St. Simon and Judas."
Any suggestions for me?

Alsó-Szlécs, Közép-Szlécs, and Felső-Szlécs ("Lower-", "Middle-", and "Upper-") were the three component villages of Három-Szlécs ("Three-"), a municipality in Liptó county, Hungary. It is now Sliače in Slovakia. Dvorzsák says the (RC) church was in Közép-Szlécs (https://kt.lib.pte.hu/cgi-bin/kt.cgi?konyvtar/kt03110501/0_0_1_pg_370.html), and that's one of the ways the records can be found in the Catalog (https://www.familysearch.org/search/catalog/768007). However, the records are mostly privacy-restricted, since they have name-lists going up to 1946, so they cannot be viewed online. (No, being at an Affiliate Library or Family History Center will not help when dealing with items that are labeled with the film reel icon in the Catalog.)
It looks like only the actual birth/baptismal registers -- which FS has up to 1895 -- have been indexed, because searching the film for a Joseph born in 1905 yields no results. There is a Josephus Caban indexed as being baptized in 1894 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KH7K-SML), so you may be on the right track.
It may be worth asking the Family History Library's Lookup Service (https://www.familysearch.org/en/family-history-library/family-history-library-records-look-up-service) to check the alphabetical name-lists that are on film 2011186 for a Joseph Caban or similar baptized in or around 1905.0
