Schafer's functions have been ported to R in the packages norm, cat, mix and pan. Their documentation includes sample code illustrating how to use them.

The aregImpute function in Hmisc provides a range of other imputation models, if you're not set on using MCMC. The mitools package might also be useful for dealing with the imputed values.

Hope this helps,
