Sisters of Charity - 1870 Census Detroit

My great-grandmother was orphaned at the age of six and in her father's probate file there were payments to the Sisters of Charity for the room and board for her and her other siblings. Does anyone know whether they ran an orphanage, and if so, where was it located? I would like to find it in the 1870 census if possible to see if the children are listed.
