safety tip #1: make sure the power is turned off and verify it.

are you planning on a surface mounted junction box or trying to recess the box? With the materials you have a flush mount isn't possible as the shallowest standart box is 1 1/2" which is to deep to fit in the rock and on the CMU. You could cut a recess in the CMU if you wanted flush mount. I would strongly recommend a 2 1/8" deep box and likely a 4 11/16" swuare due to the size of the conductors will likely require it.

Do you have conduit or open cable?
