Friend this is a GRAVE abuse that actually invalidates the Mass. It becomes a ilicit and INVALID Mass because of invalid form. Further were this a vaild form: Jesus in His Entireity would be whole and complete in every tiny fragment.
I strongly suggest that you AT ONCE contact your Bishops Office, department of the Liturgy. I repeat this is a MOST SERIOUS an GRAVE abuse.
Code of Canon Law:
THE RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE EUCHARISTIC CELEBRATION
Can. 924 §1. The most holy eucharistic sacrifice must be offered with bread and with wine in which a little water must be mixed.
§2. The bread must be only wheat and recently made so that there is no danger of spoiling.
§3. The wine must be natural from the fruit of the vine and not spoiled.
**Can. 925 **Holy communion is to be given under the form of bread alone, or under both species according to the norm of the liturgical laws, or even under the form of wine alone in a case of necessity.
Can. 926 **According to the ancient tradition of the Latin Church, the priest is to use unleavened bread in the eucharistic celebration whenever he offers it.**

Lets get things straight. Leavened bread will NOT invalidate a Mass. The Eucharist is the same in whatever rite. If leavened bread is valid matter somewhere within the Church (which it is), then its valid matter everywhere.
The issue here is leavened bread is strictly forbidden under normal circumstances and it is a grave abuse in the Latin Rite. To use it would be a sin, but it does not invalidate the Sacrament.
Exceptions of course are extraordinary situations. Like if there is a natural calamity and you lose access to unleavened bread, or if you are stranded on an island and all you have is leavened bread (and a priest with you of course) then it is allowed .
