Is purgatory still something taught in the Catholic religion? If so, how does one attain a state of Christian perfection and immidiately go to heaven?

It is still taught but not focused on from my experience because we don't know how God will judge us. A state of perfection is really hard because we all sin, but we can be forgiven. You can skip purgatory by being a good person and acknowledging your sins and asking forgiveness for them.
Being a good person means remembering the importance of hope, love, faith and charity. You do this by following the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes.
