St. Joseph the Worker was built in 1965 by displaced miners from now vanished towns of Bingham Canyon such as Dinkeyville, Lark and Highland Boy. The miners were forced to leave these towns by the expanding copper mine. Many of them, immigrants and children of immigrants, settled in the south valley areas of West Jordan, South Jordan and Riverton. They were spiritual refugees until Rev. John Sullivan led an effort to build a new Catholic church for them in West Jordan. This church would be a home of their own, a welcoming place that would restore their sense of belonging and community.
