 For what purpose are we here on earth?

"We are her on earth in order to know and to love God, to do good according to His will, and to go someday to heaven. (CCC 1-3, 358)
To be a human being means to come from God and to go to God. Our origin goes back farther that our parents. We come from God, in whom all happiness of heaven and earth is at home, and we are expected in his everlasting, infinite blessedness. Meanwhile, we live on this earth. Sometimes we feel that our Creator is near; often we feel nothing at all. So that we might find the way home, God sent us His Son, who freed us from sin, delivers us from all evil, and leads us unerringly into true life. He is 'the way, and the truth, and the life.' John 14:6" (Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church,YOUCAT, pg. 14)
