I was baptized lutherian, but was raised catholic, and had my 1st holy communion and Confirmation in the Catholic church. In order to be married in the Catholic church, will I need to be re baptized in the Catholic faith, (due to the original lutherian baptism) even tho I am Catholic??

@vintagebride143: No catholics believe in only one baptism. So because Luthern is still Christian it is accepted.
For instance I am Baptist. My SO is catholic. Lets say I convert to catholism. I would not need to be baptized in the catholic church, because I have already been baptized.
However, there are other religions like morman baptisim that would not be acceptable in the catholic church.
Hope this helps!

You (and all Lutherans, Catholics, and members of many other denominations) were really baptized Christian, not “Lutheran.” As long as your baptism was performed “in the name of the Father & the Son & the Holy Spirit,” it is recognized as valid by the Catholic Church. The denominations whose baptisms aren’t recognized (such as Mormons, as the PP mentioned) are the ones that deviate from that formula and don’t include the Trinity (i.e. Father, Son, & Spirit) as part of the ritual.
