With R&O Construction hard hats and gold shovels in hand, children of St. Joseph the Worker Parish Church took part in a March groundbreaking, and then placed the first stones decorated by them into the foundation of their new church.
The dirt from the groundbreaking will be placed under the new altar. St. Joseph the Worker is located at 7405 Redwood Rd. in West Jordan.
To make room for construction of the new 20,000-sq-ft church, R&O Construction, the general contractor, demolished the existing church, built as a temporary structure 45 years ago.
The architect on the project is John Sparano of Sparano + Mooney Architecture of Salt Lake City.
