The years are 353, 354, 355, (nonleap) and 383, 384, 385 years (leap). divide by seven and the remainder shows how many days in the week each day in the year will have been moved from the previous year.

The 2 possible Shabbat parshi'ot that can be read the most are Shmini (non-leap year) and Acharei Mot (leap year, as in this year).
