It is Shabbat Parshat Parah, פרשת פרה:

The Shabbat immediately following Purim (or the week after in some years such as this year) is called Shabbat Parshat Parah פרשת פרה. We take out two Sifrei Torah; in the first, we have seven Aliyahs in the weekly Sidrah, Parshat Kisisa; Half-Kaddish.
In the second Sefer Torah, the Maftir reads from Bamidbar, Parshat Chukat, (19:1-22), which describes the preparation of the Parah Adumah (Red Heifer), whose ashes were used in the spiritual purification process during the time of the Bait Hamikdash. This purification was carried out at this time of the year to ensure that everyone would be able to partake in the Korban Pesach (Pascal Lamb) to be offered on the 14th day of Nisan. (Some maintain that the obligation to read Parshat Parah is mandated by the Torah.)

HAFTORA: (Additional portion, from Prophets, which is read after the Parsha)
Yechezkel Ezekiel 36:16-38 (Ashkenazim);
Yechezkel Ezekiel 36:16-36 (Sepharadim)

You too can dedicate a Parsha or any other section of Torah Tots in honor or in memory of someone close to you.
